Served with a dollop of ice cream, Jean-Christophe Novelli's nutty caramel chunks make a wonderful treat for kids and naughty adults alike

Method

1. 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.

Ingredients

  • 85 g brazil nuts
  • 55 g sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Tips and suggestions

You can use different types of nut (peanuts, almonds, etc) or add orange zest for a different flavour
