1.Make peanut butter sauce. Stir sugar and the water in a small saucepan over medium heat without boiling until sugar dissolves. Cook 10 minutes without stirring or until a golden caramel. Remove from heat. Taking care as the mixture will splutter, add cream. Return pan to heat, whisk until smooth. Whisk in peanut butter and peanuts. Cool.

5.Place ovenproof dish in a large roasting pan, add enough boiling water to come halfway up side of dish.
