Italian Nut and Nougat Confection

Homemade sweet treats are always good, especially homemade torrone! This Italian Christmas candy with roasted nuts is sweet, chewy and delicious.

Italian nut nougat is also simple to prepare. Famous soft torrone comes from Alba, Siena, Cremona, and Benevento, but you can make your own white nougat which is just as tasty with almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, or pecans.

Torrone, the classic Italian nougat, is easy to make at home. Nougat is a sweet confection made of whipped egg whites, sugar and/or honey, and nuts.

In this traditional torrone recipe, the honey-sweetened candy is flavored with orange and almond flavors, and packed with toasted almonds. It’s a popular treat in Italy around the winter holidays, and a delicious gift year-round.

This is not a difficult candy to make, though it does require your undivided attention. The sugar mixture needs to be monitored to prevent burning and you’ll want to beat the egg whites to firm peaks by the time the syrup reaches the target temperature.

Be sure to have everything ready and read through the recipe a few times to familiarize yourself with the steps and timing. As with many egg white-based candies, nougat does not do well in humidity; it’s best to choose a low humidity day to make this candy.
