  • Heat the cream together with the vanilla bean.

  • Remove the vanilla bean from the cream and pour the hot cream onto the caramel little by little (watch out for splatter!).
  • Bring the caramel mixture to a boil and cook to about 240°F (115°C) degrees (around 5-7 minutes) and pour onto the chopped chocolate, add the butter and vigorously mix until you obtain a shiny texture. Add the walnuts and immediately pour into a silicon pan, let harden for 12 hours in the refrigerator
  • Remove from pan onto a cutting board. Cut circles with cutter and stick in the lollipop sticks
  • Melt chocolate and dip lollipops in to coat them
