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.

Wow! How can 3 little ingredients and just a couple of minutes end up with something that tastes this wonderful!!! My only fear now is that I won't be able to control myself enough to have any left for my friends tomorrow. Don't be tempted to skip the step of toasting the almonds as it really gives the candy a nice flavor. I didn't have enough marshmallows so I just kind of eye-balled everything and I am really pleased with the results. Made for PAC 10.
