These turrones are different from Philippine turon. Spanish turrones is a typical sweet confection that takes its origins from Moorish heritage. It’s popular throughout Southern Europe, especially during the holidays and Christmas season. El Almendro has been making turrones since 1883, and this Spanish company has long been associated with this Christmas tradtition.
The El Almendro Caramel Almond Crocanti Turron with Chocolate is made with carefully selected roasted almonds, coated in a smooth, crunchy caramel, and is laid on a bed of creamy chocolate.
This delectable Spanish treat from El Almendro is an amazing snack on its own, but is even better when paired with your afternoon cup of coffee. The sweetness of the turrones is balanced out beautifully by the bitterness of the coffee. You can also pair it with a Tawny Port Wine, a dessert wine that complements the sweet turron well.
