Nut Praline Topping
From EatingWell: June/July 2005
An appealing make-ahead garnish, nut praline adds welcome crunch and flavor to ice cream sundaes. It's particularly good served along with any of the sauces here.
- 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans, or walnuts
- 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon clover honey, or other mild honey or light corn syrup
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
- Stir together nuts, brown sugar and honey (or corn syrup) in a small bowl until the nuts are well coated. Spread out on the prepared baking sheet. Bake on the center rack, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are fragrant and lightly brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes. Using your fingers, crumble the praline into small pieces.
