    This stuff is dangerously addictive! I used sliced almonds instead of chopped (trying to make my way through an open package of them), and I used a bit less than 1/3 cup of them for the topping. Used a full 1/3 cup in the toffee part, though. I also didn't have the Hershey bars, so I used some Dove milk chocolate bars that were in the pantry. The Dove bars are a bit smaller than the Hershey bars, so I used 4 bars rather than 3. Super-good and really easy to make, too. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2014
