Almond Candy Jewels
2 cups slivered almonds
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons 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 wax 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 to 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 stores.
Omit topping. Quickly spread candy mixture in very thin layer onto
prepared baking sheet. Cool completely (at least 30 minutes).
Break into small pieces. Store in airtight containers. Place in jars or
cellophane bags for gift giving.
