    Makes: 48 bars

    • 12 graham crackers
    • 1 cup sliced almonds
    • 3/4 cup butter
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan.
    2. Break graham crackers into 4 pieces and arrange them touching on the prepared jelly roll pan. Sprinkle the sliced almonds over the crackers. In a small saucepan, melt butter. When butter is melted, stir in the brown sugar and vanilla until smooth and remove from heat. Pour the butter mixture evenly over the graham crackers in the pan.
    3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Watch carefully so that the edges do not burn. Cut bars while still warm and remove from pan. If the bars are stuck, put the pan into the warm oven for a minute to loosen.

    these are great and pretty easy to make. Not by any means healthy though. I really couldn't bring myself to use more than 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter and it turned out really well. This is really sweet though and it's a good thing to cut into really really small pieces.  -  05 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. I don't like to bake and this turned out so simple and successful. I was so pleased.I used a bag of silvered almonds that I bought and had in the house. I thought it tasted like a toffee bar. It was a pleasure to have something turn out so good and no hassle. Thanks!  -  31 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
