DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven 275 degrees, place nuts in shallow pan and heat 20 minutes, mixing after 10. (If using macadamia nuts and walnuts add them only for the last 10 minutes they are oily and can burn).
  • In a large saucepan (you will be mixing the nuts in this at the end) combine sugar, Kahlua, corn syrup and butter using a wooden spoon stirring constantly and scraping sides to get all sugar crystals melted. Sugar mixture will need to boil at least 15 minutes before you need to insert candy thermometer, keep stirring until (300 degrees F- hard-crack stage) It is very important to get all the way to 300 or the candy will be gritty and soft.
  • Take off heat, pour in nuts, stirring quickly then pour mixture out onto large cookie sheet lightly sprayed with 'pam'. Scraping all candy out and gently spreading out candy with wooden spoon. Let cool until you can handle and break into smaller chunks. Store in airtight tin.
