How to make easy toffee apple cupcakes for Halloween

Toffee apples are a Halloween and Bonfire Night tradition and earlier this week, we brought you a simple way to make them.

But if you want something with a twist (which also stops you wrecking your teeth) this recipe from Hobbycraft brings together the taste of a toffee apple with a cupcake.

They even include lolly sticks in the top in a nod to the classic treat (though feel free to leave those out if you don’t have any).

It’s a basic sponge with spices, chunks of apple and a delicious sauce poured over the top.

There’s just seven steps too so it’s ideal to make with kids this half-term.


  • 100g butter
  • 70g caster sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 300g of plain flour
  • 1 1/2 half tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 to 3 eating apples (such as Granny Smith)
  • 220ml of milk
  • Caramel sauce – this recipe used a ready-made tin version but you could make you own.
