DIRECTIONS

  • Grate the Piloncillo with a normal cheese grater until you get the two cups. If you don´t have Piloncillo use the brown sugar.
  • In a saucepan on a low temperature melt the first three ingredients stirring constantly with wooden spoon.
  • Let it boil for aproximately 7 minutes or until a tough string of caramel is formed when you lift the spoon up . Remove from heat.
  • Grease a long mold and pour the caramel trying to have it cover the whole mold trying to extend the mixture as far as you can. Meanwhile lubricate your hands with a little butter.
  • When the mixture begins to cooldown , fold the corners towards the center trying not break them. As soon as the temperature pemits it try to form a ball with the caramel.
  • Divide into several chunks, stretch and roll it a few times.
  • Stretching it out several times before it cools, then dust with chopped nut. (the recipe doesn't specify which type of nuts. Almonds, Macadamians etc will work).
  • Finally, give them a little twist to give it their "typical" form. They will look like a licorice stick only wider. A spiral staircase.
  • Wrap each one in the waxed paper.
  • Enjoy!
