Brandy Laced Chocolate Walnuts

Brandy Laced Chocolate Walnuts

I have bought chocolate covered walnuts before.
The shop bought ones are incredibly addictive but they cost an absolute fortune.
I feel I have conquered a very similar recipe and made them taste identical to the shop bought ones.
My mum even happened to mention that mine taste even better.
Give them a try yourself. They make a perfect homemade Christmas gift.

Milk (dash)
Brown Sugar (two heaped wooden spoons)
Butter (tablespoon)
Dark Chocolate (x2 bars)
Cacao Powder

1. Make the toffee sauce by mixing the butter and sugar together.
2. Adding a dash of milk allow the ingredients to mix together and bubble and boil for a couple of minutes.
3. Pour in the bag of walnuts, mix up and allow to set during the next step.
4. Melt the chocolate in a pan.
5. Mix the toffee-d walnuts into the melted chocolate along with a glug of brandy.
6. Line your baking trays with baking paper.
7. Dust the baking paper with cacao powder.
8. Separate the walnuts on to the trays.
9. Pour more cacao powder over the walnuts.
10. It is a bit fiddly but roll the walnuts around to fully cover them in cacao.
11. Leave them in a cool room for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set slowly.
