Ingredients
  Baguette 1
  Butter 50 Gram
  Sugar 50 Gram
  Heavy cream 2 Tablespoon
  Vanilla bean seeds 1⁄4 Tablespoon
  Almonds 35 Gram (sliced)
  Shredded coconut 30 Gram
Directions

Preparation
1. Slice baguette in 1cm (approx. ½ inch) thickness

2. Spread sliced bread on a baking pan; Bake for 8-10 minutes at 150C=302F. 

Baking
3. Heat up water in a saucepan at med heat; we will now going to heat up the heavy cream and ¼ vanilla bean seeds; Do not boil and leave it on side.

4. Empty the hot water off the saucepan, and place the saucepan back on the stove.

5. Place butter and met at low heat.

6. Add sugar into the saucepan; stir constantly using a wooden spoon until it turns slightly dark yellow color

7. We will now going to add the heated heavy cream. When we do this, the butter-sugar mixture starts acting up so we will need to quickly stir to blend it all well and turn off the heat immediately to avoid burning the mix.

8. Add sliced almonds; turn the heat to low, mix well to coat the almond slices nicely

9. While the caramel almond spread is still warm, place approx.. 1 teaspoonful of it evenly on one side of the sliced baguette. Once the spread cools down, it will be harder to handle, so you can keep the stove at very low heat but please be careful not to burn the spread.

10. Place all slices on a baking pan and bake for 10 minutes at 150C=302F.

Serving
11. Once baked, place the pan on a rack, and sprinkle some granulated sugar on top!

12. For the Caramel Coconut Spread, just replace sliced almonds with shredded coconuts.
