  4. Place it on a smooth and cold surface, greased with almond oil and with your hands also greased, take pieces of it and mold it into candies (to taste).

Glaze:

  2. Remove from the heat and immediately using a fork or kitchen tweezers, dunk the candies one by one into the glaze (make sure the code candy is covered with it). 
  3. Let them cool on the surface where you molded them and once cool, wrap them in paper (to taste).
