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!
I made this sweet and crunchy candy for Christmas and sent some with my husband to work. His co-workers liked it so much they asked for more. It has a lovely glossy appearance, is packed with peanuts and gets a different flavor from cinnamon.

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.
I started making brittle in the mid 1970s and have been using this recipe for about 30 years. One year, I made more than 170 pounds of this brittle to give to my customers at Christmas. —Jim Merchant, Vinton, Iowa
Meet the Cook: We delight in being hospitable - it's the true mark of a country home...even if it is in the city. This recipe's one I created myself. I enjoy various kinds of nuts and wanted a candy that has a different crunch in every bite.
My husband and I have a daughter, who's just turning 19 months old.
