Wafers with caramel and nuts
  • Ingredients:
  • 250g chopped walnuts
  • 400g caster sugar
  • 150ml water
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 200g of butter
  • 1 packet wafer sheets
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
  1. Start by mixing half of the sugar (200g) with the 150 ml of water. Put them on hob on a medium heat and mix until the mixture (sugar) starts getting amber/gold. It takes about 10 minutes or so. At this point add the butter cut into cubes(all at once) and stir quickly until all becomes smooth.
  2. Separately, mix the eggs with the other cup of sugar until it becomes foamy and triples in volume. This mixture is added to the mix of caramel. Mix well with a wooden spoon to incorporate. Leave now on low heat, continuously stirring about 15 minutes or so until the mixture thickens slightly.
  3. Pull from the heat and add the vanilla extract and the nuts chopped very roughly.
  4. Allow to cool then spread the wafer sheets with the caramel mixture. Once you finish spreading the first wafer cover with a second sheet and then spread again. Depending on how big the wafer sheets are you might have 3 or 5 sheets of wafer.
  5. Cover the wafer with a kitchen towel or kitchen paper and the put something heavy on top like a saucepan with water. Leave it until the next day so that the caramel has the time to get into the wafer sheets and soften them.
  6. You can cut the wafers as you wish - square or diamond shape. It doesn't matter is all good.
