  • Serves

    makes About 30 Candies


The key to making these Swedish holiday treats is to grease the mini muffin liners with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in the caramels.


  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 34 cup heavy cream
  • 34 cup golden syrup
  • 14 cup sliced almonds
  • Zest of 1 orange


Step 1

Line about 30 mini muffin cups with 1⁄4" x 1" aluminum mini muffin liners, spray each with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside. Stir together sugar, cream, and syrup in a 6"-diameter saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan; cook, without stirring, until the mixture reaches 250°. Remove from the heat and stir in the almonds and orange zest.

Using a small spoon, fill each mini muffin liner half full with the caramel mixture; let cool completely before serving.
