"I made this recipe about 30 times during the holidays using peanuts, cashews, or Almonds. Dipped some in Chocolate. All came out great, except I didn't use roasted almonds and they came out real nutty flavored. This recipe is Easy, Easy, Easy! Also used this recipe for Vegans. Used Peanuts, Cashews, and Almonds also. Substituted Turbinado for sugar, honey for corn syrup, and butter flavored soy butter for the butter. Came out great. Vegans loved it. Cooked the turbinado a minute or two longer to dissolve the larger crystals."
