Addictive. The Kahlua flavor was not very strong but it didn't matter, these were so good. I did not have a problem with the amount of time it took to come to the hard crack stage, in fact, I had to throw out the first pan of caramel because it went from 275 to 350 in a heartbeat. At 275 degrees, watch like a hawk and be ready to pour it over the nuts. I mixed the nuts and caramel in a large buttered bowl and then spread out on a silpat lined sheet pan. It worked very well.

These were good, and I will make them for Christmas, but the glaze took FOREVER to reach "hard crack" stage. I used a mix of walnuts and whole almonds but I liked the walnuts best. Other than the time, they were quick to put together and easy to make. Thanks for submitting this addition to my XMAS list!
