MY DH loves almond anything and this was great! I used more almond extract for his taste and will definitely make again. Thank you!
Great tasting & so easy to make! I also like the taste of almond so took a tip from one of the other reviews & almost doubled the amount of almond extract! Definitely a winning recipe, the fruits of which I shared during a recent potluck! Thanks for posting this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in the current Let's P-A-R-T-Y! event]
an ok recipe. I followed the instruction exactly. first , it is not sweet enough. secondly when cutting in warm , it break down. I believe if the almon dis roasted , and sugar added, it could pump to 4.5 star. Thank you for sharing though.
