This Halloween-Bonfire season, make it a ‘Mapple’

After finally kissing the British summer a reluctant and overdue goodbye, we’ve been gearing up for the autumn festivities with a brand-new recipe – a Canadian twist to traditional toffee apples.

Leftover bobbing apples can be transformed into our brilliant ‘Mapples’, a perfect snack for under the stars at Bonfire Night and a naturally sweet, healthier alternative for trick-or-treaters on Halloween.


Boiled down directly from tree sap, pure Canadian maple syrup is an unprocessed, natural sweetener that contains lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, so it’s a treat that really does the trick!


Check out the full recipe below to try and make your very own ‘Mapples’.



Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4




  • 500ml pure Canadian maple syrup
  • 4 red apples e.g. Pink Lady
  • 4 sticks




  1. Line a cooking sheet with parchment paper.


  1. Pour the maple syrup into a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, keeping a close eye on things.


  1. Let it simmer until the point at which a drop of hot syrup solidifies when dropped into a glass of cold water.


  1. Meanwhile, insert a stick through the core of each ‘Mapple’. Dip the apples one-by-one into the hot maple caramel.


  1. Remove any excess maple caramel with a spatula and place, head down, on the cooking sheet.


  1. Chill in the refrigerator or keep at room temperature (whichever you prefer) for around 1 hour until the maple caramel sets.


  1. Hand out to some lucky trick-or-treaters – or enjoy for yourself!
