Although this takes a little time, it is very easy, much less expensive than what you can buy, and tastes much much better. It would make an excellent picnic dessert. Yummy, yummy, yummy! I have made 2 batches so far. I forgot to add the vanilla the first time and actually think I prefer it that way. I also think I might prefer whole almonds if I had them.
My 14 yr old DD made this with my help, I think she may have overcooked the mixture on the stocetop, but it still was delicious, everyone gobbled it down and loved it!! Will make again Thanks.
