Pistachio praline

Praline, otherwise known as nut toffee, is a versatile confection and can be used in many ways, but it's hard to go past a sprinkle on top of a dish of ice-cream for delicious simplicity.

1.Preheat oven to hot. Sprinkle sugar evenly over baking-paper-lined oven tray, then place in hot oven about 8 minutes or until sugar just becomes a light golden-brown toffee.
2.Using oven mitts, remove tray from oven; place on heat-resistant surface. Sprinkle pistachios over hot toffee; cool completely, then break the praline (nut toffee) into bits.
3.Blend or process until it is like breadcrumbs. Serve spooned over vanilla ice-cream.

Be careful when making this recipe: toffee burns easily and is very hot so be sure not to touch it until it hardens and cools.
