Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 2 cups butter, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white baking chips
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons shortening

Directions

  1. Butter a 15x10x1-in. pan with 1/2 teaspoon butter. In a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, bring sugar and remaining butter to a boil, stirring constantly. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Uncover; add almonds. Cook and stir with a clean spoon until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage) and mixture is golden brown.
