Sounds like Almond Rocca to me, but I don't have a recipe. I have a friend who makes it every year for Xmas.... but won't share her secret recipe.

Typo on above recipe. It is 1 1/3 C. sugar. Sorry about that. Do not want to be one of those who give out wrong recipes!

Sharon, I grew up with that candy too and my son loves it.
Hmmmmm..........might be something to make for our Christmas trip to Denver to see him.

Don't know if you consider it "candy" or not but people I have made if for have always enjoyed the Chex Mix like Puppy Chow and there are other sweet mixes too.
