Ingredients

    1 Brie Cheese
    100 g Raw Almonds (skin on)
    100 g Sugar
    To serve: Assorted summer fruits, washed and sliced (best are soft deciduous fruits and berries!)

Directions

    Place cheese on grease-proof paper; arrange almonds in an attractive pattern on top of the cheese, reserving any extras (this will depend on size of cheese you are using).
    In a small saucepan, melt the sugar and allow it to become a golden-brown color as it caramelizes.
    Do not stir.
    Pour caramelized sugar over the nuts and cheese; it will harden as it cools.
    To serve, place cheese on a large platter and arrange fruit around it.
