When I was a youngster, June would have been my favorite month. Why? It’s National Candy Month! National Candy Month National Candy Month was started by the National Confectioner’s Association (NCA) in January 1974 to help boost the sales of various candies which tended to drop after the holidays. The celebration moved to May for a while and then to June where it is celebrated today. I had no idea how much money is spent nationally on candy — I should have given how much I can spend on candy. LOL On the NCA website, they note that there are $36 billion in confectionery retail sales in the USA. Today’s Recipe To start the celebration of National Candy Month, I have a recipe for Almond Buttercrunch Candy. This delicious classic candy recipe is sure to become a new family favorite. It is always a welcome treat during the holidays or anytime you need a thoughtful host/hostess or teachers’ gift. Proper timing is one of the keys to success with this recipe. For example, you’ll want to add the baking soda and vanilla extract to the hot candy mixture as soon as you remove it from heat. Plus, you’ll also want to have the ground chocolate chips ready in advance to spread on top of the hot candy mixture right away so it melts from the heat. Therefore, be sure to have all ingredients measured, prepped, and nearby before you start preparing this recipe. Special Equipment Needed: To make this recipe you need a Candy Thermometer. I also included other items you might need to make this recipe. On to the recipe! Also if you make this candy recipe, share it in the comments.
