    Since I made this during the holidays, I think I have made it again at least 15 times. Everyone that tries it is addicted to it, including my husband and me! I have given many batches out as gifts. Some people that I have given it to aren't even willing to share with their family....they save it and eat it all themselves. Just the best! I did add 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of b soda at the end of the cooking time, and I cooked it to about 350 degrees as it was too gummy yet at the degree specified in the recipe.

    OMG -- sooo good!! Very different :) I toasted the almonds first -- definitely the right thing to do. And I subbed honey, because of corn allergy. It's a holiday must-have at our house now!

    I made this for Christmas and it was a hit. Everybody LOVED it. We got home and my husband asked me to make more for him and the left overs he would take to work. But make sure you boil the sugar to the right temp. or it will NOT turn out. P.S. I also added a few extra drops of hot sauce and if you mix the nuts in a bowl with the hot sauce first it taste better.
