    Meanwhile make Hazelnut Praline: Place sugar and 1 cup water in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil. Boil, without stirring, for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture becomes golden in colour, brushing down side of pan with cold water if sugar crystals start to form. Remove from heat. Stand for 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Using a fork and working quickly, dip hazelnuts one by one into the toffee to coat, allowing excess to drain off. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Stand for 20 minutes or until set. Roughly chop half the hazelnuts. Keep remaining hazelnuts whole.
