From a little Swedish Recipes book of mine. Makes about 60 candies.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup dark corn syrup
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 cup cream
- 1 cup chopped blanched almonds or 1 cup mixed nuts
- Combine sugar, syrup, butter and cream in a heavy saucepan.
- Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture forms a firm ball, about 250 degrees on a candy thermometer.
- Add nuts and pour into small fluted waxed paper candy cups or onto well-buttered cookie sheet. If poured on a cookie sheet, allow to set before cutting into small squares with oiled scissors.
- Wrap in waxed paper.
These were good, not so hard though and wanted to stick to the teeth a bit. Good recipe!
