Nut fanciers have a lot to love about this irresistible brittle. The variety of nuts is what makes it do different. It's one of the first sweet treats to appear on my Christmas candy tray...and also the first to disappear!

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.
