- 1 2⁄3 cups slivered almonds
- 1 egg white, slightly beaten until frothy
- 1⁄2 teaspoon water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar, divided use
- 2 tablespoons honey, chilled

- 6 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup heavy cream, heated
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15x10-inch jellyroll pan with Reynolds Wrap Foil. Spray with no-stick cooking spray.
- Place almonds in a large bowl. Stir egg white, water and vanilla together in a small bowl. Pour over almonds. Stir to evenly coat. Stir sugars and salt together in a small bowl. Pour over almond mixture. Toss to evenly coat. Spread evenly on foil-lined pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until almonds are glazed, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from oven. Allow to cool before removing from foil and breaking apart any large clumps. Place in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, for biscuits, line bottom and sides of a 13x9x2-inch baking dish or pan with a large sheet of Reynolds Wrap Foil. Spray with no-stick cooking spray. In a small deep mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and ¼ cup of sugar on low speed until smooth. Add honey, cream and extract. Beat on low speed until combined.
- Spread each biscuit to a 3-4 inch circle. Add a scant tablespoon of cream cheese mixture in center of each biscuit. Enclose biscuits around mixture and seal. Arrange 15 biscuits in foil-lined dish. Drizzle with half of melted butter then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of remaining sugar. Add remaining 15 biscuits and drizzle with remaining butter then sprinkle with remaining sugar.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes until biscuits are done and tops are golden brown, covering with another sheet of Reynolds Wrap Foil during last 10 minutes of baking time to prevent overbrowning. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a large serving platter.
- Meanwhile, for sauce, whisk chocolate, cream, salt, and vanilla together in a small deep mixing bowl. Place in a small bowl. Cover with Reynolds Wrap Foil to keep warm.
- Arrange bowls of almonds and sauce on edge of platter. For each serving, place 2-3 biscuits on each serving plate and drizzle with warm sauce as desired then sprinkle with a few almonds. Serve warm. Serves 10-12.
