Turron de Avellana y Almendra

Turron de Avellana y Almendra


  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups almonds, toasted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups hazelnuts, toasted and cooled
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar


  1. Blend the almonds and hazelnuts in a food processor until a paste forms. Set aside.
  2. Place egg whites in a stand or hand mixer with the whisk attachment and whisk until medium peaks form.
  3. Mix the whipped egg whites with the nut paste until well blended.
  4. Place the honey and sugar in a medium-sized sauce pot and bring to a boil.
  5. Add the nut-egg white paste and cook over low-medium heat for about 12 minutes, constantly stirring until the mixture thickens and begins to brown just a bit.
  6. Pour the mix onto a lightly greased 12 x 17-inch pan sheet and chill.
  7. Once chilled, cut into 24 pieces. Roll the pieces in hand to create cylindrical shape, then wrap in cellophane or simply store as is.

Makes 24 pieces.
