While some people get stressed shopping for Christmas gifts, others prefer to go to torrone heaven.
Most people who purchase torroncini never make it back to their cars before unwrapping one and biting into it. The dark chocolate coating is paper thin, just barely beginning to melt against anxious fingers. And inside, oh my. It’s packed with crunchy almonds, toasted to perfection, with just the right amount of creamy filling holding it all together in a sweet embrace. Torrone heaven.
