1.In a medium saucepan, melt butter, add nougat; stir over medium heat, without boiling, until nougat is melted. Stir in sugar and water over medium heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil; boil, uncovered, without stirring, for about 3 minutes or until syrup is thickened slightly.

4.Gradually beat gelatine mixture into nougat mixture; transfer to a large bowl.
5.Beat cream in a small bowl until soft peaks form; fold into nougat mixture.
6.Pour custard into six 2/3-cup (160ml) serving glasses. Decorate with toffee pieces, if you like.

We used amaretto in this recipe, but you can use any almond-flavoured liqueur you like.
