Last December, I made this recipe for the first time and made no less than 15 batches of this wonderful candy!! It was such a huge hit with everyone who received it, that I am asked this year if I plan on making more. (Actually, it is more of a demand!) Every December, I make 70-90 dozen different kinds of cookies, at least 18-8 inch loaves of pumpkin bread, 18 loaves of another kind, and at least 20 pounds of candies, truffles and fudges. Add the 15 or so batches of your wonderful brickle and it all makes for delightful gift baskets for my out-of-state family and in-state friends. Thank you for an easy and so delicious brickle recipe - it is the best one I ever tried!

This recipe is one of my kids favorites. I just made some today and I had all the neighborhood kids here wanting a piece. This recipe is so easy and quick and my kids just love it so do I and my husband as well. I always thought candy was hard to make since the carmels I make at christmas take forever and other recipes I have read look so detailed and take forever but this recipe is so simple qick and easy and the result is awesome.

I made this for the first time at Christmas to put with my Christmas goodies I put together...needless to say, it didn't make it with the rest of the goodies I made, my husband and kids got into it first because they had to "try it first to see if it tasted alright for everybody else" it was gone before I knew it. I love chocolate and love almonds, so the two together, it was wonderful!! :)

I have never made such an easy recipe that tasted soo gooood. I also added white chocolate morsels on top instead of chocolate. Mmmmm. I make trays for visitors at Christmas. So far I've made 13 different kinds of cookies! And, I've never made a recipe like this to add to my trays. It's already GONE! Everybody just loved it. Soooo, I need to make another one and maybe even one more to boot! I've spent at least $100.00 on NESTLE' products for all my goodies for Christmas. It's a time of sharing and boy do I love to share and do THEY love to recieve my cookies and now CANDY! Thank you for all the good tips and recipes on this site. I've e-mailed many friends and family to join and they have and love it as well as I do!! Merry Christmas and God Bless each and every little finger in your kitchens! Only 12 more different recipes to go!!!

This recipe is sooooo easy. I made it with my daycare kids (they "pounded" the almonds). I even sent it to my cousin who uses her oven as a "storage" cabinet! She was pleased to have a recipe that she didn't have to convert her "storage" cabinet back to its original oven! She loved it also.
