Served with a dollop of ice cream, Jean-Christophe Novelli's nutty caramel chunks make a wonderful treat for kids and naughty adults alike
Method1. Place the nuts in a food processor and blend into crumbs.
2. Melt the sugar in a saucepan over a low heat, then turn up the heat and cook until the sugar starts to become brown.
3. When the sugar has reached a nut-brown colour, tip in half the processed nuts and the lemon juice to stop it cooking.
4. Stir and immediately pour the caramel onto a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with the rest of the brazil nuts and leave to set before breaking into pieces.
5. Serve with a dollop of ice cream.
- 85 g brazil nuts
