Italian Christmas Torrone Recipe

Torrone is a traditional Italian candy that is served during the Christmas holidays. It can also be enjoyed at other times of the year!

Rice paper
8 oz honey
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp water
1 lb blanched almonds
1/2 lb hazelnuts
2 tsp candied orange peel, diced
1 tsp grated lemon zest

Warm up the honey in a double boiler for 5 minutes. Beat the egg whites to the point of soft peaks, and fold it into the honey.

In a separate pan, mix the sugar and water and bring it to a boil without stirring. It should turn caramel in color. Mix this into the honey. Cool it until slightly thick and then add in remaining ingredients.

Line 3 6x8 pans with rice paper. Divide the mixture amongst the pans, pouring to a 2" depth. Cover with rice paper and let set for 20 minutes.
