DIRECTIONS

  • Beat egg whites until they're white and fluffy.
  • Boil the honey over medium-high heat until it becomes a thick caramel-consistency.
  • Mix the honey and the egg whites.
  • Continue to beat this mixture with a wooden spoon (wooden spoons are best for candies and sweets).
  • Add the vanilla extract and cook with the double boiler method.
  • note: If you don't have a double boiler available, place a medium-sized pot inside a slightly bigger and deeper pot, fill the bigger pot with water so that the smaller one is halfway submerged.
  • Continue stirring until you achieve a caramel consistency.
  • In a separate pot over high heat cook the sugar, corn syrup and the water until you obtain a caramel.
  • Once you have the caramel add the other mixture and the almonds.
  • You have 2 options for assembly:
  • Grease a working surface.
  • Place the mixture and roll out with a rolling pin, shape to your liking.
  • (it's usually sold in a rectangle shape).
  • Let it cool.
  • Or if you find the oblea cover a rectangular baking sheet with the oblea.
  • Roll out the mixture and let it cool.
  • break into pieces.
  • When cooled the candy should be really hard.
