First toast the hazelnuts at 160 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. Meanwhile mix the sugar with the water and caramelize this on a medium heat. Once the caramel is golden add the hazelnuts and while stirring caramelize it for a couple more minutes till the caramel is golden brown. Then pour it on a silicon sheet and let it cool down completely. After that break it into smaller pieces and transfer it into a blender. Now cut the vanilla pod in half and scrap out the seeds. Add the seeds to the hazelnuts and then blend it till you have a smooth praline. This is going to take a couple of minutes. Once it’s smooth add the cream and the white chocolate. Then finally add the flaky salt and directly stop mixing after. Now you can pour it in a bowl and then transfer it into a piping bag. Fill your molds halfway and tap them a couple of times to remove any air bubbles. Then take your cookie crisp and cut it with a cutter that has the same size as the mold. Press it on the ganache and then let it set it your freezer for at least 8 hours. Otherwise, you won’t be able to remove it properly. Then remove the ganache from the mold. Let it defrost in your fridge and it’s ready to be served.
