    Imagine this as the topping to the shortbread?! Crunch up the walnuts into smaller pieces or use pecans even… Yum!

    I’m going to have to agree with your husband on this one! Definitely looks like heaven in a bowl (:

    Okay, I made the Skibo Castle Ginger Crunch last night to rave reviews. Now I will have to make this! Since I live in the states, my sister brings me Roger’s Golden and I carefully protect it and hide it in the pantry. I grew up having Roger’s on fried bread dough (my polish-german grandma called them pluskies) Loving your experiments with butter and syrup. Thought about it watching Elf and thinking HE WOULD LOVE ROGER”S GOLDEN SYRUP. HAHA.

    Wow! Just made a batch and it is so GOOOOODD!Just happened to have some left-over toasted walnuts from yesterday’s appetizer (walnuts, dates, balsamic and honey over melted Brie). This praline is great, and over ice cream or as Kathleen said, on shortbread, it would be a hit! Thanks, Julie.

    This should work on popcorn too for our nut-challenged friends??

    Approximately 14 minutes after discovering this bit o’ heaven on your blog I was pigging out on it in my own kitchen. Thanks Julie; you’re amazing. So is butter.

    oh my gosh! That looks fantastic! Wish I would have grabbed some walnuts at the store last night.

    I can’t eat butter (Well, I can eat a tiny tiny bit, but if these are as good as I think they are that would just be tortune to myself!) Will browned butter work the same if I used margarine or shortening?

    I had to make this the instant I saw it, and I’m so glad I did! Yum! I squirrelled some away for myself before letting my husband know I’d made any at all ;-)

    Julie, was the texture slightly granular? If not, what do you think I did wrong? I did use icing sugar.. maybe over-cooked something? or undercooked?

    Shauna – mine was just ever so slightly granular, but in a fudgy way, not grainy or gritty.. not sure what would have caused that! I didn’t pay much attention to my cooking time – I think it would be better to underdo it than overdo it!

    Thanks! I’m thinking I overdid it a bit as I was waiting for the nuts to be a wee bit more toasted.
