Sounded easy so I'm going to try making this for Christmas gift giving along with my favorite Divinity Fudge. The Pineapple Fudge was a hit last year.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
  • 1 -1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

Combine almonds and coconut. Spread in thin layer over bottom of buttered 13 X 9 inch pan.

In sauce pan, melt butter, then blend in remaining ingredients. Cook, without stirring, until mixture reaches soft crack stage (290 degrees F)

Ad

Remove from heat and pour in a thin stream evenly over almonds and coconut.

Cool, then break into pieces. Store in an air-tight container.

Servings: Makes about 1 pound of candy.

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 unsalted saltine matzo crackers
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. shortening
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions:

Line a large baking pan with foil; line the foil with parchment paper. Arrange crackers in pan; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 3-4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Spread evenly over crackers.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15-17 minutes (cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly). Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Stir in almonds; spread over top.

Ad

Cool for 1 hour. Break into pieces. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until set. Store in an airtight container.
