Nutritional Facts

1 serving (2 ounces) equals 277 calories, 12 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 6 mg cholesterol, 233 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. Butter two baking sheets and keep warm in a 200° oven. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and water. Cook and stir over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 240° (soft-ball stage). Stir in the butter, cinnamon, salt and almonds; cook and stir until mixture reaches 300°(hard-crack stage), brushing down sides of pan with water as needed.
  2. Remove from the heat; stir in baking soda and vanilla. Quickly pour onto prepared baking sheets. Spread with a buttered metal spatula to 1/4-in. thickness. Cool; break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
