Almond Candy Jewels




  1. Line large baking sheet with waxed paper, set aside.

  3. In 10- or 12-inch skillet melt butter until sizzling; add almonds, with wooden spoon (not rubber spatula), until sugar and nuts are golden brown (4 to 9 minutes). (Watch closely to prevent burning.) Immediately remove from heat; sprinkle with desired topping above. (Do not stir.)
  4. Working quickly, using two spoons, drop level tablespoonsful of almond mixture, forming mounds, onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm (about 45 minutes).
  5. Place individual clusters in paper candy cups or on squares of colored foil; store in airtight container at room temperature.
