My very, very favorite Christmas candy. Yummy!
Here's a no fail recipe that I use without any problems!
1 tbsp corn syrup
11/4 cups white sugar
1 cup butter
1/4 cup water
11/4 cups toasted slivered almonds
1 6 ounce pkg. chocolate chips
In large saucepan, gently boil syrup, sugar,
butter and water until hard crack
appears on candy thermometer (300 F/150 C) Do not stir! This step takes at
minutes. I mean don't stir after you have initially stirred up to make sure
it is well
combined and dissolved and started to boil. Remove from heat, add almonds
and mix well.
Spread on ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with chocolate. chips. As they
chocolate evenly over the candy. Cool in fridge or freezer. Break into bite
and hide them before someone sees you! You can toast the almonds in a fry
pan over medium heat until lightly brown.
