Swedish Christmas Kola (Caramel Candy)



  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/3 cups almonds, chopped


  1. Mix all ingredients except the almonds in a large sauté pan, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Test by placing a drop of the hot caramel into a glass of cold water. If you can make a soft ball by rolling it between your fingers, it is ready.
  2. Pour caramel onto a large nonstick baking sheet, and sprinkle with chopped almonds.
  3. Refrigerate to chill.
  4. When partially set, slice into small portions and wrap in wax paper squares cut to fit.
