  • Summary

    Put the butter, sugar and water in a frying pan and turn the heat up high. Don’t turn it down. Stir the whole time. It takes about 10 – 15 minutes to make. Cook it until the color turns caramel. You can see little puffs of smoke coming from the caramel-colored bubbles. Take it off the heat and add the vanilla. Pour the candy over the sliced almonds or chopped walnuts. I have a marble slab that I pour the candy on, but you can use a cookie sheet set on a bread board. The candy gets so hot, I wouldn’t put the cookie sheet directly on Formica. It might burn through. If you want the candy covered with chocolate, sprinkle pieces on top while it’s hot and let it melt. Spread it out. Cool, break it into pieces and enjoy.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cubes (1/2 pound) butter (must be AA grade. Lesser grades of butter have water in them and the candy will separate.)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 5 T. water
    • 1 t. vanilla
    • Chocolate – use good quality, your favorite
    • Nuts – any kind you wish. Get ‘em chopped and ready.
