"I made these yesterday and they are wonderful! I did not have almonds but I had lots of pecans, so I chopped up 2 cups and used those. I also used vanilla, rather than almond extract, to go along with the pecans. I shared some with a friend yesterday and brought a couple dozen to work today and everyone loves them. They remind us a pecan sandy!"

"I've made these numerous times. Everyone loves them. It's not easy to find the toffee so I bought it on Amazon. I had to buy a lot but since they're now a family favorite I'll make them more often."

"Great reactions from everyone that had them. Definitely a keeper! I think next time I may get whole almonds and give them a rough chop instead of the sliced almonds."

"Suzanne, toffee bits are Heath's bits o' brickle. That's what I'm going to use. I have not made these yet, so I'll rate on eye appeal. Why do people change the recipe completely and then rate the original recipe?"

"Where do I get just toffee bits? Could only find Hershey chocolate coated Heath bits. Had to rate it to submit. Will revise once I bake."
