  • 2For the grapefruit marinated in whisky

    Peel the grapefruits, making sure to remove all of the pith then cut each segment in 2. Place the segments in a bowl, add the whisky and the sugar. Allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes.

  • 3For the Carambar chips

    Preheat the oven to 180°C.
    Remove the Carambar toffees from their wrappers and place on a baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Make sure to leave a little space between each Carambar as they will spread out when cooked.

Chef's tip

«Make the jelly a day in advance to make sure that it is well set. The longer you marinate your grapefruit for, the stronger the whisky flavour will be.»
