Ingredients

Candy:
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 cups slivered almonds
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
Topping:
1/2 cup one of the following: Semi-sweet real chocolate chips, Butterscotch or vanilla milk chips, Toffee chips, or Chopped red and green candied cherries


Line large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.


Melt butter in 10 or 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add almonds, sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon, 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.)


Working quickly, drop level tablespoonfuls of almond mixture, forming mounds, onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm (about 45 minutes). Place individual clusters in paper candy cups or on squares of colored foil. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
