Use almonds, pecans, peanuts, or walnuts – or all of them


  • 3 oz Karo syrup
  • 1/2 tsp almond or walnut extract
  • 1 C granulated sugar


  1. Heat over medium high heat
    This will take about 30-40 minutes
  2. When it starts to brown and caramelize, add your nuts
  3. Dump 3 C nuts into the glaze
  4. Stir until everything is well coated
    You should have “spider web” strings between the pieces
    About 5-10 minutes
  5. OPTIONS:  Add some coarse salt for salted caramel, chili for a bit of a bit, or cinnamon for a holiday treat.
  6. Pour onto waxed paper or parchment paper and let them COMPLETELY cool before breaking apart
  7. They will keep for a very long time – – – months !

NOTE:  This will pretty much ruin your wooden spoon, so either use the same spoon every time, or use something that is near the end of its life anyway.
