Torrons (or turrones in Spanish) are an omnipresent dessert at Spanish Christmas tables. There are many varieties of these traditional sweets involving different ingredients and combinations, but they are generally made of almonds or hazelnuts, sugar, honey and egg.
The most popular variety in Catalonia, and the one few people attempt themselves at home, is the torró de gema cremada. This recipe is very easy and very tasty. Have fun and be careful with the blowtorch!
