Knäck

- Swedish Christmas Toffee

Ingredients

3 dl Whipping cream (40% fat)
3 dl Granulated sugar
3 dl Pale syrup
50 g Butter
100 g Sweet almonds These can be omitted

Procedure

Put all the ingredients except the almonds into a large heavy-based saucepan and stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Stop stirring and bring to the boil. Keep the mixture boiling gently, stirring occasionally, until it has reached 120 o C. This can take an hour or two. Meanwhile, peel and finely chop the almonds. Once the required temperature has been reached, add the almonds and remove the saucepan from the heat. Use a small jug to pour the mixture into tiny cake cases (about 2 cm in diameter). Leave to cool.
