Burnt almond caramel sauce

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Slivered, blanched almonds
5 tablespoons Unsalted butter
¾ cup Dark brown sugar
Hot water
1 pinch Cream of tartar
½ cup Gewurztraminer
1 cup Heavy cream
1 tablespoon Instant espresso powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and toast them 10 minutes or until golden. Dot the almonds with 2 tablespoons of the butter and replace in a turned off oven for another 10 minutes. In a saucepan combine the sugar, remaining butter, 3 tablespoons water, the cream of tartar and a pinch of salt and cook the mixture over moderate heat until a candy thermometer reads 230 degrees. Carefully add the wine, cream, coffee, vanilla and almonds. The mixture will boil up. Stir until combined and smooth over low heat. Raise heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Off heat, cool and store covered in refrigerator. Serve cold or warm.
