Swedish Christmas "Knäck" with Klingskitchen!
Today we are sharing a much-loved classic Christmas recipe - Knäck! This is a traditional Swedish toffee prepared at Christmas. The name translates into "break" and refers to its hard consistency.
Katarina: "This is the world's simplest recipe for Swedish knäck . Just add the toppings as to what you desire! For a more traditional taste, add a little bit of chopped almonds to the mixture once ready boiled. Otherwise it's just letting the imagination run wild .... I did these ones with rock salt, chiliflakes, pistachios and rosemary. I would like to try it next time with pink pepper!"
