Here’s an easy Spanish holiday recipe: you only need chocolate (250 g), chocolate rice puffs (30 g), vanilla (a tablespoon) and butter (35 g).
Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave (450w, 30 second intervals). My chocolate is Nestle’s milk chocolate.
Add the vanilla and mix them together:
Add 30 g rice puffs (mine are Choco Krispies)…
Mix until well combined…
Place the mixture in a silicone mold (or half an empty carton of milk if you don’t have any suitable silicone mold).
Level the mixture and let it sit on the fridge until it’s solid.
Here’s my bar of turrón! If you want to add more chocolate or less rice puffs, please do.
This turrón is similar to the most famous spanish brand, Suchard.
Switches that can be made:
Butter can be substituted for lard. It’s actually the correct way to do this recipe.
Milk chocolate can be substituted for any kind of chocolate (white, dark, semisweet…)
A tablespoon of powdered milk can be added.
There are many brands that sell turrón de chocolate with nuts on it (peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts…) so those can be added to the mixture. Just adjust the amount of rice puffs and chocolate.
So this is my turrón…
Left side, my turrón, right side, Suchard’s classic turrón de chocolate. It’s basically the same, but their rice puffs are round. Mine are elongated 🙂
I like to keep this in the fridge in an airtight container. If I’m being honest, it doesn’t stay there for too long…
