A sweet snack food from India that is traditionally made using one or several types of nuts such as Chikki nuts. The contents of this snack are held together with the use of a sweetener such as jaggery, sugar, glucose, or honey combined with corn syrup. the mixture is then placed into wooden molds to create a large slab that is then rolled out with wooden rolling pins to achieve the desired thickness of approximately 1/2 inch (6 to 8 mm) thick. After setting up, the Chikki is then ready to cut into small squares or retangular pieces for serving. Other ingredients that may be used for making different types of Chikki include: sesame seeds, almonds, pistachios, combined with puffed rice, beaten rice, coconut, and puffed (roasted) bengal gram.
