    1. Hi thanks for the question. 🙂 I just went and checked the official Disney cookbook and those are the only ingredients it lists in the book. For the Almond Roca Crumble it only states 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tbsp light corn syrup, 1/2 cup unsalted butter and 1 cup silvered almonds. If there should be a water element, they haven’t listed it. I hope that answers question and I’m understanding it properly. Thanks again.
