Caramelised Macadamia Camembert
Crunchy toffee and nuts with camembert and figs.
|Preparation Time:||10 minutes|
|Cooking time:||5 minutes|
- 200g wheel camembert
- 1/3 cup macadamia nuts
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- fresh figs, for serving
Remove camembert from refrigerator one hour before serving to come to room temperature and place on a serving plate. Place macadamias onto an oven tray and bake at 200°C for 4-5 minutes until lightly golden. Roughly chop macadamias and arrange over the top of the camembert. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until sugar dissolves, then boil, without stirring until a golden caramel colour. Take care that toffee does not burn. Working quickly, drizzle toffee over the macadamias and allow to set. Serve immediately with fresh figs or allow to stand for a couple of hours. The caramel will soften and seep into the cheese, giving a bittersweet flavour.
