Nut Rocca Candy

"This is a great recipe! It's very easy too. I make mine with almonds, but I have tried pecans and it was equally good.I put pieces of the candy in mini muffin cup papers, go give for gifts. I hope you will try and enjoy! Times are guestimated, as I'm usually too busy to time things around the holidays!"

  1. I got a recipe almost identical to this from an old Betty Crocker cookbook, but you use pecans. It comes out perfect every time and is always the first treat people ask if I am making at the holidays. It's fantastic!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
