Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1/3 Cup(s) Land O Lakes Butter
2 Cup(s) Slivered almonds
1/3 Cup(s) Sugar
2 Tablespoon(s) Light corn syrup
1/2 Cup(s) One of the following:
Semisweet real chocolate
Butterscotch or vanilla milk
Toffee chips
Chopped red and green
candied cherries
For best results, assemble all ingredients before starting. Line large
baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In 10 or 12inch skillet melt
butter until sizzling; add almonds, sugar and corn syrup. Cook over
medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon (not rubber
spatula), until sugar and nuts are golden brown (4 to 9 minutes).
(Watch closely to prevent burning.). Immediately remove from heat;
sprinkle with desired topping above (DO NOT STIR). Working quickly,
using two spoons, drop level tablespoonfuls of almond mixture, forming
mounds, onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm (about
45minutes). Place individual clusters in paper candy cups or on
squares of colored foil; store in airtight container at room
temperature. Candy cups and colored foil available at cake decorating
stores. Makes 30 candies. Almond Toffee: Omit topping. Quickly spread
candy mixture in a very thin layer onto prepared baking sheet. Cool
completely (at least 30 minutes). Break into small pieces. Store in
airtight containers. Place in jars or cellophane bags for gift giving.
