Toffeed Camembert Cheese with Toasted Almonds

Daylight savings = longer days = entertaining. Impress your guests when you add this to your next cheese platter – just don’t tell them how easy it was to make!


  • 250g Tasmanian Heritage Camembert
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon toasted flaked almonds
  • grapes, pears and crusty bread, for serving


  1. Remove camembert from refrigerator 30 minutes-1 hour before use. Place on a serving plate and allow to come to room temperature.
  2. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until sugar dissolves, then boil, without stirring until a golden caramel colour.
  3. Take care that toffee does not burn. Working quickly, drizzle toffee over the Camembert in a thin layer and sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately with grapes, pears and crusty bread.
