- 100g desiccated coconut
- 150g sugar
- 10 hazelnut – roasted and crushed
Spray a bit of oil on the flat tray that will be used to cool down the thins. The light spread of oil will prevent the thin from sticking to the used surface.
Mix the crushed hazelnuts to the coconut.
Melt the sugar on high heat, then stir until it becomes golden and really clear.
Add a pinch of salt to the melted sugar, then put in the coconut and hazelnut. Mix very quickly with a spatula until the sugar is completely absorbed. This process should take 1 minute max… it has to be done very quickly.
Remove from the hob and lay the mix very flat on a dish prepared for it. Using a rolling pin or the back of the spatula, continue to flatten the mix, then create tracks as above on the picture.
The tracks you have created will allow you to easily break off the thins once the mix has cooled down and hardened.
If you rather make balls and have a high heat tolerance. You will have to move very quickly as the mix can cool down and harden within a minute… The balls can only be rolled by hand.
…And here is what I made few months earlier… in the dark
Note: melted sugar can be really painful if not handled with care. No children should be around when you are doing these thins.
Adding salt to the melted sugar breaks down its sweetness.
