Ah, this is obviously famous Crna Alva? Did you get it?

Yes Rally, this is Crna Alva :) I've done halva is very tasty, maybe too long to be stored wrapped in a wrap. Can be done with any nuts, dried fruit and even be put.

Thank you. Will make it, I'm curious:-)

buci, I liked halvichkata :). Remain my time will do: P :)

I loved the recipe. In the favorite is. Will try.

buci to ask how the moa to do as photo fruit and is shokolava sounds interesting :)

Instead of nuts - put raisins or dried figs, dates, whatever you think fits. Watch only their volume is as in the recipe, if 200 g walnuts +100 g hazelnuts are 3 cups - Put 3 cups chopped dried fruit, or mix with nuts, so that is the initial amount.

djjeorje02, Rally explained how wonderful can be obtained, and the combination of dried fruits are not limited, put whatever you like, if you want something more exotic and put dried mango.

Thank you very much for your answers will be happy to try the recipe with dried bananas if I can find
