Vegan Almond and Sour Cream Candy

 Have you ever made—say, a batch of fudge, brownies, cookies or candy—and accidentally eaten the entire thing yourself? I'm not saying I ate all 36 squares of delicious candy from this recipe, but… I’m not saying I didn’t, either. Whoops!

Almond and Sour Cream Candy

2 c. cane juice crystals or natural sugar
1/8 t. salt
1 c. vegan sour cream
1/8 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. vanilla
3 drops almond extract
1 c. slivered almonds

You will also need:
Candy thermometer to check temperature

Mix cane juice crystals or natural sugar, salt and sour cream in a heavy two-quart saucepan.

Heat gently over low heat, without stirring, to soft ball stage, (245 degrees). Remove from heat.
It will be light-colored and bubbly

Cool to lukewarm (110 degrees), then add cinnamon and flavorings and beat until creamy.
It may darken slightly as it cools

Fold in almonds. Pour into greased 8-inch square pan. When cool, cut into squares.

Makes 36 squares.
