Almonds add a nice nutty flavor to this tasty snack. It's perfect for potlucks and not too sweet. Served in a decorative dish, basket or tin, it has a golden holiday look. —:Karen Buchholz, Sitka, Alaska

"I have used this recipe many, many times since I first copied it from the magazine in 1994, when my mother had a subscription to Taste of Home. It is always a big hit at every event, and many people ask for the recipe.

I modify it in various ways depending on what ingredients I have. You can replace part, or all, of the dark corn syrup with honey, molasses, agave syrup, or maple syrup; use other nuts besides pecans and almonds (pecans are too expensive now); use Honey-Nut Cheerios instead of regular; add maple flavoring, cinnamon and/or nutmeg; add raisins or dried cranberries. Any way you make it, it is an awesome snack!
I noticed that the recipe here fails to mention the baking temperature--in fact, it skips that entire step. I think it is 350*F--I lost my recipe and can't remember it!"
