    Annacia's Note:

    "Sweet coffee, candy and nut clusters in chocolate. Not a recipe for the novice candy maker. You won't regret the effort, though. These crunchy nutty treats are better than cookies and won't last long once your guests try one!. " This is the heading on the recipe I found in and old cookbook hidden in the back room at work. I have updated the instructions but the ingredients are the same (I'm guessing that it goes back to the 20's). Anyway, it said nothing at all about time or the amount this will make. The times and amount given is a total guess on my part. I'm posting because I really want to try this recipe this Christmas season.

      I'm not at all a coffee fan, but thoroughly enjoyed making these little tasties to share with several groups whose meetings we attend, & they were raved about no end, so I figured it was all in a good cause! Definitely worth the effort of making them it they cause that much satisfaction with your coffee-drinking friends! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
