60 millilitres of water

2 eggs white

60 grams of nuts

100 grams of Maroni candied chestnut

1 tea spoon of vanilla extract

125 grams of butter



Put powdered sugar, glucose and honey into a pot, melt them by mixing on the low heat.

When this mixture started to melt, add the water and keep blending.

In a steel container, whisk the egg whites until they become a white hard foam. Rest your whisked egg whites in the cupboard until use. So it will keep its consistency.

Put the melted sugars on the lower heat of your oven. So, they will stay warm and will not get burned by this way until they are used.

Then add the nuts.

After a while, add the vanilla extract. Continue to mix.

Take the syrup prepared by sugars and honey from the oven, and slowly add this into the mixture. Keep mixing while adding the syrup. Do not add all of the syrup at once. Otherwise, egg whites can get cooked due to hot syrup. Also do not pour all the syrup, leave some syrup in the pot.

Add butter into the remaining syrup and melt the butter by mixing the syrup.

Then add this new mixture into the egg whites and blend them again.
