Sticky and sweet chopped hazelnuts - perfect for a crunchy element!
Warm a kitchen towel in the microwave or clothing dryer. Wrap the hazelnuts in the warm towel, and let them sit for 5-10 minutes.
Then, rub the towel vigorously against the nuts to remove the shells.
Place the naked hazelnuts in your food processor and roughly chop them into smaller pieces.
Next, melt the butter over medium heat in a small saute pan. Add in the sugar and nuts, stirring for 5-10 minutes until the sugar has dissolved and the nuts are shiny and sticky.
Spread the hazelnuts over wax paper, making sure they aren't overlapping too much until they are cooled.
