THE BEST Christmas candy you will ever eat. Aside from being with family and what the holiday season means, this is the reason I look forward to Christmas the most. This is by far my favorite candy to make in the whole world. I guarantee your family will love it too. They will beg you to make it for them every year. Your Christmas gifts may even improve after this. ;)


Recipe is grandma's and mama's.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb
butter
2 c
sugar
1/4 c
water
2 c
walnuts or black walnuts
6 oz
semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp
light corn syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line 9x13 cookie sheet with 1 1/2 cups of walnuts that have been chopped in a nut chopper or food processor. Don't over chop them but you want them smaller than they come in the bags marked "chopped" walnuts.
2
Melt butter over low heat.
3
Add sugar and stir until sugar dissolves.
4
Add water and light corn syrup. Cook over low heat to 290°F crackling stage. Stirring occasionally making sure not to burn the bottom. Keep candy thermometer in pot and MAKE SURE you cook to EXACTLY 290°. (be patient, this takes time since you're cooking on low)
5
Pour filling over walnuts evenly.
6
Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Use a butter knife to spread the chocolate evenly over filling as it melts.
7
Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup black walnuts.
8
Let stand to cool before breaking. Once cool, stick butter knife pointed side down and push through candy and break into different sized pieces. ENJOY!
