  • 1
    For the praline, line a tray with oiled foil or baking paper. Stir the sugar in a small saucepan over low heat for 1-2 minutes to dissolve. Increase the heat to medium and simmer, without stirring, for a further 4-5 minutes until it’s a golden caramel (watch carefully so it doesn’t burn). Remove from heat, sprinkle in salt and immediately pour onto tray in a thin layer. Cool completely. Crush three-quarters of the praline into small pieces, then break remainder into large shards. Set aside.

    In a large bowl, whisk the yolks by hand for 1 minute until frothy. Slowly pour in the warm caramel, whisking constantly. Return mixture to cleaned pan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
