Suggestions for flavourings
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar, syrup and cream and bring to the boil. Boil until it forms a thick caramel cream, about 10 minutes. Leave the caramel cream to cool slightly.
Chop the chocolate and melt over a water bath.
Brush the inside of praline/foil moulds with the melted chocolate and place in the refrigerator. Brush one more time and place in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets. Fill a piping bag with the rest of the chocolate.
Choose one of the flavourings. If you choose Turkish pepper or saffron, use a pestle and crush the Turkish pepper, or place the saffron and 1 tbs sugar in a mortar and grind together.
Add the flavouring to the caramel cream and pour the cream into a piping bag. Fill the moulds two-thirds full, and pipe the remaining chocolate on top to form a lid.
Leave to cool in the refrigerator. Then remove the pralines from the moulds.
