Almond Praline

Almond Praline is a perfect accompaniment to plain, soft chocolate or caramel, cakes or puddings. The crunch of almonds together with caramelised sugar, imparts a wonderful texture to desserts. It can also be served on its own, as a scrumptious crunchy after-meal sweet. (recipe source: Super Food Ideas Magazine)

Cooking Time: 7 - 10 minutes + cooling time

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
1. Line a baking tray with baking paper and keep aside.
2. Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over low heat and keep stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Increase heat to high, bring to boil and continue to boil without stirring for 5 - 7 minutes or until mixture turns golden brown in colour. Remove from heat and set aside for 30 seconds. Add almonds and pour onto prepared tray immediately. Allow to cool. Break praline into shards and serve with desserts or by itself.

Note: Keep in an air-tight container, layered with baking paper for up to 3 days.
