This Valentine’s torrone recipe is a great snack for Valentine’s Day. This torrone was made with white chocolate that red food coloring was added to make a festive pink. These are great to sit out and friends and family can grab a little piece of.
- 16 oz. Kraft jet puffed miniature marshmallows
- 16 0z. white chocolate
- 3 tsp. McCormick pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup almonds
- red food coloring
To toast your nuts. Place them on a cooking sheet with an oven preheated to 350 degrees. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, mix the nuts around and cook for an additional 3 minutes each time, until nuts are browned.
Prepare the pan that you will be using. Use waffer/rice paper on the bottom and sides of the pan.
You have to work fast preparing the chocolate and marshmallows. First I use my microwave to melt the white chocolate. Do this in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is smooth. Set aside. Melt the marshmallows the same way. Immediately mix the chocolate with the Kraft jet puffed miniature marshmallow, and I mean fast! After the chocolate/marshmallow mixture is combined add the McCormick vanilla extract, almonds, and red food coloring. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Smooth another piece of waffer/rice paper on top of the torrone. Press the torrone flat with your fingers. Set aside for no less then 12 hours.
Peal the top layer or waffer/rice paper off the torrone. Flip your pan over onto a cutting board. Peal off the remaining waffter/rice paper. Cut the torrone into your desired shapes and sizes, and enjoy!
