2 C sugar
WARNING: icky gross body part coming up. (foot. feet are gross, especially mine. you’ve been warned)
After it’s set, you can transfer scoop out the contents of your pan on to waxed paper. BE SUPER CAREFUL. Sugar burns hurt like a mother, and I was lucky enough to learn this by having one teensy droplet fall onto a toe.
This is not some funky foot crust, but sugar that fell onto my scaly toe and crystallized. I just realized I missed the opportunity last night to say what sweet feet I had. Darn. A bad pun AND a rhyme.
I think maybe I could have let the sugar cook for longer initially to increase caramelization. And after adding the nuts too, perhaps. However, they did come out beautifully and tasted praline-y (or at the very least candied).
I had an ulterior motive in making these – birthday present for my mom. Happy Birthday, Lady!
