Simple Buttercrunch Candy Recipe

Mom used to make this every Christmas that I can remember. We kids used to look forward to it. Now I make it for my family.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup toasted and chopped almonds
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup toasted and chopped almonds

DIRECTIONS:

1. Butter a baking sheet, and set aside.

2. Melt margarine in 2 quart saucepan. Add sugar, and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Stir in water and the corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, to 270 degrees F (132 degrees C).

3. Remove from heat, and quickly stir in coarse nuts. Spread on to prepared baking sheet.

4. Sprinkle chocolate over hot candy; when it begins to melt, spread evenly over the top.

5. Top with nuts. Refrigerate until firm. Break into small pieces to serve.
