    Added a pinch of cinnamon and we all loved it. Am making another batch as the first disappeared!

    This has been my husband's favorite for 30 years. The only change I make is to blanch the almonds. Delicious!

    These are really good. Be patient, and stir constantly. The sugar takes a while to liquefy, but once it does, it goes really fast so be ready.

    Great easy recipe! A couple of tips, don't double and cashews work great!

    Loved them!! Easy to make, and anyone that has tasted them, love them!! I added a little more butter than what was called for.
