1 egg white
70 cubic centimeters of water
200 grams of sugar (1 cup)
4 drops of vanilla essence
1½ tablespoons of milk powder
150 grams of roasted peanuts
Steps to follow to make this recipe:
1 To prepare the homemade turrón, put the water and sugar to heat in a pan or saucepan. Form a syrup until it reaches the point of a hard ball. You will notice that it starts to make more and more intense bubbles. Another test you can do is to put a drop of syrup in a glass of water. When it falls to the bottom, grab that little ball with your fingers and it should be hard.
Tip: Don’t stir the syrup while cooking so that the sugar doesn’t crystallize. To prevent it from burning, move the pan slightly.
2- Beat the white into the snow. When it reaches the point, slowly pour the hot syrup in the form of a thread.
3- Continue beating until the preparation cools down and takes shape. Then, add the roasted peanuts, the vanilla essence drops and mix well.
4- Add the powdered milk and integrate the mixture of your homemade nougat very well.
5- Pour the preparation of the nougat into a mould of the desired shape with its base covered in film paper. Distribute all the preparation and crush it very well so that the Christmas nougat is well armed.
