Caramel Stuffed Walnuts from Cleopatra

50 g almond flour
50 g sugar
12 tablespoon orange essence
30 walnut halves
50 g sugar

Legend has it that this recipe has been deciphered from a hieroglyphic. These sweets were served at wedding banquets and given their high energy value, we imagine that Cleopatra offered them to her lovers to restore their spirits.
Makes 6 or 7 servings, or about 15 candies
Preparation time is about 35 minutes, including five minutes for cooking


1. Mix the almond flour (milled almonds, grind your own in a food processor or blender if you like) with the sugar and enough orange essence to form a paste.
2. Place a little of this paste between two walnut halves and press.
3. Melt the sugar in a pan with a few drops of water and when it starts to turn to caramel, remove it from the heat source and dip the nuts inside to coat them with caramel.
4. Set them out on grease proof paper to dry
