Baking is the tastiest part of LaJunta Malone's hobby of collecting gingerbread boys. "I decorate gingerbread cookies to use for gifts and always serve them during the holidays," says this Camden, Alabama reader.
This is a nuttier version of a basic brittle recipe. I added macadamia nuts - my favorites - and the brittle turned out tastier than ever. I love making this crisp snack because the results are impressive...and the job goes fast using the microwave.

"These special candies have the irresistible combination of coconut, almonds and deep dark chocolate," remarks field editor Janet Loomis of Terry, Montana. "They make great gifts - if you can get yourself to part with any!"
I make these bite-sized treats as holiday gifts for friends—and I get lots of thank-you notes in return. The mailman doesn't mind delivering them, though. He gets a box of candy, too! We have three generations of family working together on our dairy farm in the "thumb" of Michigan. Everyone agrees these milky morsels promote our product deliciously.
The original version of this recipe was handed down from my great-aunt. Through the years, my mother and I have tried different flavor combinations...this is a favorite for all. —Brenda Keith, Talent, Oregon
