Recipe Exchange

I'm currently doing a recipe exchange and thought I'd share with you my recipe. This is sooo good! I always make these candies at Christmas time.

The recipe came from one of my favorite cookbooks. Easy dessert cooking with 5 ingredients or less!!

Almond Caramels

12 graham crackers
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup slivered almonds

lay graham crackers in bottom of foil lined 15x10 inch jellyroll pan

in medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves

bring sugar mixture to full boil and stir continuously for about 5 minutes. Make sure not to cook too long or let it burn..

Pour mixture over graham crackers and spread mixture to coat crackers. You have to do all of this rather quickly because it cools quickly.

Sprinkle chocolate chips over and let stand for 1 minutes until they melt. Spread chocolate chips in swirling motion.

Sprinkle almond slivers over chocolate and press into chocolate to hold almonds.

Cool thoroughly and break into pieces..

This is a good recipe. I always make it at Christmas time!
