Thanks to Deb for this unusual & delicious coffee creation. Would make a nice addition to a coffee themed gift basket. (Coffee gift basket ideas)
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 cup strong coffee
2 1/2 cups unbroken halves of nuts
In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, syrup and coffee and boil to soft-ball stage; 240 degrees. Remove from heat and add nuts. Stir gently until creamy. Spread on greased cookie sheet; separate with fork. Cool.
Orange Candied Nuts Substitute 1/2 cup orange juice for coffee in Coffee Candied Nuts recipe. Add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon with the nuts.
