If the kids don't want to bob for apples, then fix these beforehand and watch all the little goblins grovel for 'em! Apples for halloween follow the tradition of the centuries old halloween game of trying to catch apples with your teeth from a barrel of water. Toffee apples appeared later at halloween fairs.
Prep.Time: 30 minutes
10 apples
8 ounces molasses
4 ounces butter
16 ounces brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
Thoroughly wash the apples then dry with paper towels. Insert a wooden stick in each, downwards through the core to act as handles. Put the molasses, butter, sugar and vinegar in a saucepan and mix together and bring to the boil for about 20 minutes. Quickley dip the apples in the hot mixture and then place on a rack to set.
