    Kitty Kat Cook's Note:

    Turron is a product I grew up eating during Christmas time. It's a hard candy confection made out of caramel and almonds. There are other kinds out there, soft, chewy, etc. I used to be able to buy it at the store, but sometimes it's hard to find. The oblea might be hard to find, check in the international isle at your local store. This is mainly sold in Spain. You can also try my recipe for obleas if you have the time.(Convert to US measurements if needed) Enjoy
