#264 Turrones de Mani

Turrones de mani is a nougat confection, typically made of honey, sugar, and egg white, coated in crushed, toasted peanuts, and usually shaped into either a rectangular tablet or a round cake. This candy is evidently derived or is a variety of the Spanish turrón.

In the Philippines, turrones de mani is sold or prepared mostly as a traditional dessert for Christmas. But nowadays it can also be bought all-year long in retail stores, specialised gourmet or souvenir shops. The Philippine nougat is usually prepared with peanuts, pili nut or cashews (turrones de casuy). Shaped like rectangular sticks and wrapped in very thin white wafers, the crusty wafer envelopes or sandwiches the nutty filling. Great as an accompaniment for tea and coffee.

Bon appétit!
