Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
Delicious and very easy candy to make, I especially like the fact that no candy thermometer is needed. I have given this out at Christmas for years now, it wouldn't be christmas without it.
This was the easiest candy I've ever made. I was out of pistachios so I used almonds in one batch and pecan in another and both were big hits. Be very careful with the heated syrup as it gets very hot. Preparing the cookie sheets ahead of time is essential because this recipe cooks very quickly. I used butter to grease the pans and it added to the butteriness of the candy. I was in a rush and put the candy in the fridge to cool and it was ready in 15 minutes to break up. I'm taking it as a gift for a hostess. My family loved it and it's so much better than store bought and really just as easy.
