~ Almond Candy Jewels ~

1/2 cup butter
2 cups slivered almonds
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 T light corn syrup
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or
butterscotch, vanilla milk or toffee chips
or chopped red and green candied cherries

Line large baking sheet with waxed paper, set
aside. For best results, assemble all ingredients
before starting. In 10 or 12-inch skillet melt
butter until sizzling; add almonds, with wooden
spoon (not rubber spatula), until sugar and nuts
are golden brown; 4 - 9 minutes. Watch closely
to prevent burning. Immediately remove from
heat; sprinkle with desired topping above.
Do not stir. Working quickly, using two
spoons, drop level tablespoonfuls of almond
mixture, forming mounds, onto prepared baking
sheet. Refrigerate until firm; about 45 minutes.
Place individual clusters in paper candy cups
or on squares of colored foil; store in airtight
container at room temperature. Candy cups and
colored foil are available at cake decorating


Give as a gift in a white gift box embellished
with designs sponge painted on lid. Embellish
with Christmas ribbon. Add gift tag.
