I really enjoyed these bars and I think others did too! They were very sweet–very much candy bars–and nice and portable and resilient, unlike many other desserts. I would advise against leaving them in the fridge to cool overnight like I did, as I had a very difficult time cutting them. (I actually bent a knife!)
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup almonds, crushed
- 2/3 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a fork combine butter, brown sugar and flour until the mixture forms crumbs. Press this mixture firmly into an un-greased 9 x 13 glass dish. Sprinkle with nuts.
Combine butter and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly. Allow mixture to boil for one minute then pour over crust. Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes and then use a rubber spatula coated in cooking spray to spread evenly over the crust. Let the bars cool then cut.
