I'm a great one for devising alternative sweet treats for occasions such as Halloween and this simple low fat idea appeals to adults and children alike!
My 'melted' apples make a delicious snack or warm dessert served on their own or with some natural yoghurt.
They look like toffee apples that have melted and gone a little wonky for Halloween...Infact, they are simply slow-baked apples in their own natural 'toffee', dusted with a light shimmer of icing sugar.
The sticks are purely for decoration as the apples are too soft to stay perched on the top.

YOU WILL NEED
Small eating/garden apples
1 teaspoon icing sugar
Simply wash the apples and leave whole.
Place on a baking tray.
Make a hole in each apple. This is to insert the stick into once baked.
I used a chopstick.
Bake at 150C/300F/Gas2 for around 2 hours until the apples are really soft and the skin has hardened but isn't burnt. Some natural syrup will leak out of the apples.
While still hot, scoop up some of the syrup and place onto the apples. This will go crisp when cooled and tastes of burnt toffee.
Place sticks into the holes in the apples.
Pop the apples carefully into cupcake cases. Dust lightly with icing sugar through a fine sieve. (A tea strainer is ideal for this).
You'll need 1 teaspoon of icing sugar for up to about 10 apples-it only needs to be a very fine layer.
Serve slightly warm as a pudding or outside in the cold Autumnal air-you can eat them with your fingers by holding onto the stalk but take care as they are very soft!
Sweet little apples!
