Turrón de Chocolate (Chocolate Fudge)

Turrón de trufa negra con Yogur y Grosellas Rafa Gorrotxategi

This typical Christmas sweet is simple to make even for kids.

Ingredients for one bar of turrón:
250 grams of butter
250 grams of crumbled cake
100 grams (4 Oz) of almonds
100 grams (4 Oz) of walnuts
1 x 150 gram (6 Oz) tablet of chocolate
8 tablespoons of sugar

Method: Put the chocolate in a basin over a saucepan of hot water and leave it to melt. Work the butter with the sugar until you obtain a creamy consistency. Add the tepid chocolate to the cream with the crumbled cakes and mix the whole lot together well. Add the almonds and walnuts, well chopped. Turn the mixture into a rectangular mold, lined with greaseproof paper that has been spread with butter. Leave it to set in the fridge for 24 hours before removing from the mould.
