    To make chilli glass, line an oven tray with baking paper. Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan. Stir over a low heat, without boiling, until the sugar is dissolved. Brush down the sides of the saucepan with a pastry brush dipped in water. Increase the heat to medium; boil, without stirring, until a golden caramel colour. Add chilli flakes to toffee. Pour the toffee onto the tray. Tilt the tray a little so toffee forms a thin sheet. Stand for about 10 minutes or until set. Break into pieces.
