Many of the other recipes use a sweet liqueur such as butterscotch schnapps to obtain the 'caramel' feel, but this one is a different take, using a homemade toffee syrup instead. This twist adds a fresher feel, a flavor that is truer to the inspiration of dipped apples and is quite lovely.
In keeping with this fresh aspect, the Toffee Apple is best with as freshly pressed apple juice as you can get your hands on and makes this ideal tipple for apple season.
