TORRONE

Ingredients:
220 grams honey
180 grams sugar
50 ml water
1 large egg white
100 grams salted peanuts
100 grams unsalted peanuts


In a heavy – duty saucepan mix honey, sugar and water, and, cooking on medium high heat, bring it to a boil and let it boil until it reaches 140˚C (about 280˚F). If you are cooking this without a candy thermometer, cook it for about 12 – 15 minutes (mine took exactly 13 minutes) and check if it's ready by pouring a little bit of syrup into a glass of ice cold water, it should form a little ball with fragile edges. In a large bowl, beat the egg white with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form, then pour the syrup in, in a steady flow, not all at once.
Continue beating until it cools down a bit (it will take about 10 minutes), then fold in roughly chopped peanuts (hazelnuts, almonds, whatever you like) and pour it all out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and lightly dusted with icing sugar. Form a loaf and let it sit at room temperature for a few hours, until the surface is dry to the touch and you can cut it. Original.

  5. Ja volim kikiriki, tako da se nisam previše dvoumila :) mislim da bi bilo dobro i sa lešnicima, a videh da je Zoka koristila i kandirano voće, to mi se mnogo dopalo :)

  6. Odlican je! Radila sam ga ranije ali mi je bio meksi nego sto treba, bas bi ga mogla ponoviti u ovoj kikiriki verziji :)

  7. Ajme obožavam sve što ima veze s bjelanjcima.
    Mi u Dalmaciji imamo mandulat. Praktički jednako izgleda, ima verzija sa bademima, lješnjacima..Meni je nekako najdraža verzija sa bademima I lješnjacima :)

    Jednom sam ga radila po nekakvom domaćem receptu ali nije se nikako mogao stisnuti. Išlo je jako puno bjelanjaka, jako puno meda i na kraju sam ga morala jesti žlicom :D
    Ovo isprobavam sigurno, vidim da je kao kupovni.

    genijalno!
