cups almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped, divided
cup (2 sticks) butter
cups packed brown sugar
cups (from 11.55-ounce package) milk chocolate morsels
Sprinkle 1 1/4 cup nuts over the bottom of a well-greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Melt the butter in a medium, heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 280 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 7 minutes. Pour the hot mixture over the nuts; let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with morsels. Let stand until morsels melt and become shiny and soft, about 5 minutes. Spread evenly. • Refrigerate for about 20 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces.
