3 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 pound candied cherries, coarsely chopped
1/2 pound candied pineapple, coarsely chopped
1 3/4 cups chopped pecans
1 3/4 cups chopped walnuts
1 3/4 cups chopped Brazil nuts

Preparation

Combine sugar, syrup, and half-and-half in a 3-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft ball stage (238°).

Remove from heat; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer 8 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in vanilla, candied fruit, and nuts. With buttered hands, divide mixture into 7 equal portions. Shape each portion into an 8-inch log. Wrap each log in waxed paper; chill thoroughly. Remove waxed paper, and cut each log into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Store in airtight containers in refrigerator.
