This was so easy to make and is so tastey!! I had some leftover melted white chocolate from another recipe so I drizzled a little on the top for color/decoration. I did break up the almonds a little with a meat tenderizer so there would be some smaller chunks, but otherwise made as directed. Made for Lets P-A-R-T-Y 2010.
