Almond Pralines

For praline:


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sliced and toasted almonds (with skin)


Place a large sheet of foil on a heatproof work surface. Heat sugar in a heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly until it starts to melt. Then continue cooking, swirling skillet occasionally so sugar melts evenly, until it is golden. Add toasted almonds, stirring until coated well. Pour mixture onto foil, allowing it to spread. Cool completely (about 15 minutes). Peel praline off foil and chop into pieces then place in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
