Walnut Praline

A lovely crunch  sprinkle over cakes to decorate or place on a cheese board 


  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • Small packet of walnuts chopped into quarters


  1. In a small baking tray place a piece of baking paper along the bottom
  2. In a large saucepan sprinkle the caster sugar over the bottom and  over medium to high heat
  3. Do not stir at all as the sugar will crystalize but swirl the melting sugar around the bottom of the saucepan  to disperse the heat and keeps the sugar melting.
  4. Once the sugar has melted and and turned a lovely golden colour quickly fold in the chopped Walnuts to coat in the sugar toffee  using a spatula then spread the very hot  walnut toffee mixture  on the baking paper and spread out as able
  5. It doesn’t need to be a uniform shape in fact the more different end bits you have the better.
  6. This sets pretty quickly I just wrap it up in the baking paper it is on and keep in a airtight container until I’m ready to use
  7. To use  break off big or small bits of the praline and scatter around cakes or have bigger chunks on cheese boards .
