Ingredients

  • Sugar 100g
  • Hazelnuts 150g

 

Instructions

  1. Toast/Roast the hazelnuts at 160~165°C for 10mins.
  2. Melt the sugar in a saucepan (a large saucepan will allow the sugar to melt more evenly) Heat on medium-high heat while whisking/stirring the sugar.
  3. When the sugar melts and turns brown in color add the hazelnuts. The caramel will harden but keep stirring and it will turn liquid again.
  4. Coat the hazelnut completely with caramel.
  5. Cool completely.
  6. Grind it in a food processor until it turns to paste.

 

Notes

Useful Tip:

When grinding the caramelized hazelnut in the food processor, the friction inside the food processor will generate heat and it'll become hot! Keep the temperature of the paste below 60°C (preferably around 50°C) or else too much oil will be extracted from the hazelnut.

Another method:

This method isn't the only method of making hazelnut praline. In fact, the method I've shown you today is the quick method as it uses dry caramel rather than wet caramel. The old-school version is one where you use wet caramel and crystallize the sugar with hazelnut. It tends to have more depth in the flavor but it takes so much longer so I prefer the quick method.
