    Meanwhile, make walnut praline: Stir sugar and the water in small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil; boil, uncovered, without stirring, about 10 minutes or until toffee is a caramel colour. Remove from heat; allow bubbles to subside. Place nuts in single layer on baking-paper-lined oven tray; pour toffee all over nuts. Stand at room temperature until set. Chop praline finely.
