    Everyone loves when I make these. Had to search high and low for the almond filling but it was well worth it!

    I made this bar for a special school function and it was the hit of the cookie tray. I think this will be a new cookie I make for my christmas trays, too! This is excellent and easy.

    They are a lot easier to make than they look and they taste like you spent hours on them. Sooo yummy!

    The Chocolate-Glazed Almond Bars are a real keeper. Three squares of the melted bitter-sweet squares though are more than enough to glaze the bars.

    I used slivered almonds as that is what I already had.
