Shortbread cookies, toffee and roasty-toasty almonds team up for a treat that's both crunchy and chewy. This candy is a huge hit with my family and friends. —Nancy Mock, Colchester, Vermont

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 ounces) Girl Scout Shortbread / Trefoils® cookies
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a greased 15x10-in. rimmed baking pan with parchment paper coated with cooking spray. Arrange cookies in pan.
Microwave butter until melted; whisk in brown sugar. Microwave 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture is a thick caramel sauce. Pour sauce over cookies, covering each completely.
Bake until puffed up and bubbly, about 10 minutes (do not allow to burn). Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over hot caramel. Let stand 5 minutes; spread chocolate over caramel. Top with almonds.
Refrigerate baking pan until chocolate and caramel have hardened, about 1 hour. Break or cut bark. Yield: 2 pounds.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
