- Pour the heavy cream into a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Put the chopped chocolate into a medium bowl and pour hot cream over it. Place the bowl over a small pot of simmering water. Mix with a metallic spoon, until the mixture is combined and smooth.
- Add the caramel liqueur and remove bowl from over the bain marie.
- Line a 20x20 cm baking pan with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into the pan. Knock the pan on the counter to make the mixture spread in the pan evenly.
- It’s very handy to let the parchment paper hang off the sides of the pan, so that you can remove the truffles easily. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until firm.
- Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
- Sprinkle sugar over the parchment paper in pan.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until the sugar melts and turns golden. Add the toasted almonds over the sugar in the pan. Allow to cool completely. Transfer to a food processor and pulse until finely ground.
- Remove truffle from pan and allow it to reach room temperature. Cut evenly into 36 square pieces.
To store truffles, place in a container. Use parchment paper to separate pieces and layers. Refrigerate for up to 1 week. Before serving, sprinkle with salt, cocoa powder and almond praline.
