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.

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