Tastes wonderful - sorta like a Heath Bar but better and super easy taking only about 15 minutes to prepare. Though it calls for only 1/4 cup of almonds, I crushed an extra cup and then pressed them into the mixture after the chocolate chips are spread. This is going to look great on my holiday tray. Found in the all recipe magazine
