This recipe is a total coop! My mother in law, Michele, who is a wonderful and sweet person, gave me this recipe a couple years ago. My Aunt Rachael, a fabulous cook in her own right, was anxious to have it. When I did get it, I passed it along. Mostly because it is a delicious candy that everyone enjoys!!
2 sticks butter (1 C)
1 1/2 C brown sugar
12 oz milk chocolate (yes, milk, not semi sweet)
10 oz slivered almonds
Toast the almonds, and allow them to cool
Chop the cooled almonds, and chocolate.
Spread 1/2 the almond/chocolate mixture in a buttered 9 x 13" pan
Cook butter and sugar until mixture reaches 300 degrees (use that candy thermometer again)
Pour the butter/sugar mixture over the chocolate/almonds in the 9 x 13" pan
Cover with the remaining nuts/chocolate
Spread everything so it is smooth
Refrigerate 1.5 hours
Break up and enjoy!
