Preparation steps

1.

Line a shallow pan with parchment paper. Bring the sugar and 175 ml (approximately 3/4 cup) of water to a boil with the cardamom. Simmer for about 15 minutes while stirring occasionally to a make a syrup. Be careful not to brown the sugar. Remove the cardamom and take the syrup off the heat.

3.

Turn out from the mold, remove the paper and cut into pieces. If desired, coat with dark chocolate. Keep in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 4 weeks. Serve as a decadent treat.
