It was my dad who inspired me to first try making this candy. He remembered it from when he was a boy. The ultimate compliment was when he told me my version tasted even better! My husband's a driver with a parcel service. As you can probably guess, he works long hours around the holidays—that gives me time for making treats! We have a 2-year-old (he likes to jump up on a chair and help in the kitchen) and a second child due in March.

Here in Kern County, there are thousands of acres of almond orchards. I like to experiment with recipes-always trying to come up with something new. This candy is the result of altering, adding and a lot of taste testing (somebody had to do it!). I think it turned out rather well.

For a crunchy snack that suits the season, try this one. I've been stirring up batches of the distinctive brittle since 1975. With popcorn, almonds and candied cherries tossed together in a sweet crisp coating, it's a festive favorite we enjoy every year.
