Preparation – 10 minutes

preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

spread out the hazelnuts on a small baking tray and toast them for about 5 to 10 minutes until they are a lovely golden brown.

if the hazelnuts have skins, it is best to let them cool down before making your nougatine. You can then easily remove the skins by rubbing them in a tea towel.

Make your nougatine – 20 minutes

make the caramel by gently heating the sugar with 2 tablespoons of water. Be careful as caramel is very hot.

do not stir the sugar as it will crystallise. You can very gently shake the pan if you wish. Let the caramel take on a rich and dark colour and then immediately stir in the roasted hazelnuts.

place a piece of baking parchment on the baking tray you used to toast the hazelnuts. Spread the caramel hazelnuts over the baking parchment and leave it to cool.

place the cooled caramel in a food processor and chop finely. Store the nougatine in a sealed jar.
