Caramelized Hazelnuts
 
Makes ½ cup
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (71 grams) hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (14 grams) unsalted butter, softened
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place hazelnuts on prepared pan. Bake for 5 minutes. Wrap nuts in a kitchen towel, and rub nuts in towel to remove loose skins. Keep warm.
  3. In a small saucepan, cook sugar over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until amber colored. Add warm nuts. Cook, stirring constantly, until well coated, about 1 minute. Add butter, and stir, separating nuts.
  4. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Working quickly, use 2 forks to separate nuts. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
