M&S certainly got creative with this recipe. Colin the Caterpillar Chocolate Toffee Apples aren't just toffee coated; taking inspiration from our favourite party pal the toffee apples are then covered in milk and white chocolate, chocolate cake, jazzie sprinkles and the new mini Colin faces.

But they're actually still simple to make, despite all those tasty ingredients! It's an ideal recipe to make with the family for Halloween or Bonfire Night and uses toffee sauce instead of hard toffee so is easy for little ones to munch on.

Plus a four person serving only uses four Colin faces out of your bag of minis, which means plenty left over to snack on and keep everyone happy while waiting for the transformed apples to set in the fridge.

And you certainly don't need kids to enjoy making or eating the supermarkets very special take on the autumnal tradition.

Here is the supermarket's full recipe:

Serves 4

  • 4 large apples

  • 1 bottle toffee dessert sauce

  • 1 chocolate sponge roll

  • 1 jar jazzie sprinkles

  • 300g milk chocolate, broken into small pieces

  • 100g white chocolate, broken into small pieces

  • 4 mini Colin chocolate faces

  1. Place a lollipop stick in the centre of an upright apple and push firmly down into the core until secure.

  2. Pour toffee dessert sauce into a deep bowl and roll the apple in the sauce. Place upright on greaseproof paper on a large baking tray and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

  3. On a large plate break up the sponge roll until you have large, breadcrumb-like pieces. Pour over ⅔ jar of jazzie sprinkles and use a spoon to mix together.

  4. In a deep bowl melt the milk chocolate in the microwave on a low heat, stirring occasionally to ensure that it doesn’t burn.

  5. Remove the apples from the fridge. Some of the toffee sauce may have pooled to the bottom of the apples; use a spoon or knife to spread back over the apple.

  6. Dip the apples in the milk chocolate to evenly coat.

  7. Roll the apples in the cake crumb and jazzie sprinkle mixture.

  8. Place upright back on the greaseproof paper and chill for 15 minutes.

  9. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Using a knife, drizzle the melted chocolate over the apples to create stripes. Sprinkle with remaining jazzie sprinkles.

  10. Using the leftover white chocolate, use your knife to carefully spread some on the back of a white chocolate Colin face. Stick on the front of your apple.

  11. Chill for a minimum of 2 hours.

All ingredients needed are available in M&S Stores.
