Italian Torrone or nougat one of my husband’s favorite candies. After years and years of trying recipes, I finally nailed it a couple of years ago.
Because there are so few ingredients in this recipe, quality ingredients are a must. I love using this Spice Honey Crème from Honey Ridge Farms. The warm winter spices add extra depth to the Torrone. It also makes the candy extra creamy.
I used Pistachios in this recipe because I love the saltiness that it brings to the sweet Torrone. In the past I have used slivered almonds, cranberries and a mixture of nuts, all with amazing results. This recipe does involve a candy thermometer, but is totally worth it! I recommend using this thermometer, but make sure not to buy it at the gourmet food stores as it is about triple the price!
Honey Ridge Farms has many difference Honey Crèmes available. From Raspberry to Blackberry, these jars would make the perfect gift for your foodie friends. Better yet, combine a jar or two with a bag of freshly made Torrone and your recipient will be over the moon! They also have other items including Honey Grilling Sauce and Honey Balsamic Vingar– which I can attest are absolutely delicious! The delicately sweet honey balsamic vinegar is perfect on salads! Honey Ridge Farms is offering a 10% discount this holiday seasons, which makes for AMAZING prices on raw honey (and of course their other products).
