Torrone of Almonds (Mandorle), so crunchy and sweet... a must for Christmas! If you have problems with the Torrone coming together, please watch the video below. Nonna Romana will show you how to make it!
Pour all the ingredients in a tall pot and put on the stove at medium flame.
Continuously and slowly turn all the ingredients with a wooden spoon.
The sugar will melt... you are not done. Continue to turn.
The sugar will then crystallize again... and you still are not done. Continue to turn.
The sugar will melt one more time and once it is completely melted and it is of amber color, remove the pot from the flame and pour the content on a sheet of aluminum foil. The entire cooking process is about 20 minutes.
With a spatula quickly flatten the hot almonds to form a sheet about 3/4" thick.
Let it cool for about 5 minutes and with a large knife cut the entire sheet in squares of about 2" on each side.
Remove the aluminum foil from all the pieces and let them completely cool off.

I prefer using 1/2 honey and 1/2 sugar - not quite healthy but less sugar.

Adeline... you need to read the instructions! :) If they the almonds were sugar coated, then you stopped short in the process. You had to continue stirring the almonds on the flame until the sugar melted once again! :)

I remember a honey flavor in the almond torrone of my youth, so I will also mix the sugar 1/2 and 1/2 with honey to see if it works.

This worked out perfectly and was delicious. Even my finicky Italian mother said she loved it and took home a ziplock bag full!

My almonds looked like sugar coated almonds and didn't bond together. I kept it on the boil for about 50 minutes and still no good. In the end there was not enough liquid to bound the almonds together.

I have not seen a recipe for this ever. I have my moms recipe she left me but here's is 3 times this size. So happy to find a smaller one the only difference is her recipe does call for honey and that is what I'm used to so I too will make that slight change. Can't wait to make this week
