    1. What a super cool and unusual idea:) Love the salt and sweet stuffs!! Just dropping in from Mandatory Mooch and have been loving following you. Would love to invite you to share any of your favorite posts at Freedom Fridays Blog Hop (no rules and live now:)

      Merry Christmas!!

      Love your ebooks especially "10 ways to Grow Your Blog"!
    2. Lynda, it actually can be a slightly tricky recipe if you don't get the boil temperature right. I remember last year I made many many batches and every once in awhile - FAIL! :) It was frustrating. Just remember to watch that mixture for a "rolling boil" then STOP STIRRING as it continues to boil for 3 minutes and only 3 minutes. You're shooting for the 'soft ball stage" in candy degrees which is about 235/245 degrees.
      Give it another try with attention again to the details - it will likely work! Good luck! - Lise
    3. I used Aldi's milk chocolate chips on my first batch and they didn't melt! I had to throw the whole pan out. Started from scratch with Nestlé Tollhouse Morsels and it came out perfectly. I'm only using name brand chocolate chips for melting purposes from now on!!
    4. This is soooo amazing. My sister (yay sisters!!!) made it at Easter and we all could not get enough! I had a hankering for it again n asked her where she got her recipe...hence why I'm here :) just had to send a thanks and share how amazingly delicious this is followed as is!!! Remember crazy expensive Almond Roca?!? This tastes exactly like it but even BETTER!!! Thanks a million <3
    5. I tried this tonight and forgot to start the timer for the 3 minute boiling so I just guestimated and then did the water test ( drops of the sugar mixture in cold water to set how it sets), and it worked great. The chocolate chips spread easily with a flat cake icing paddle. I didn't pat the nuts into the melted chocolate and I lost a few when breaking it into pieces so I won't forget next time. Parchment paper works great too. Really good and so easy.

      So, I made 3 batches of this last year for neighbor gifts. It turned out really grainy and chewy. What did I do wrong? I threw it all in the garbage and my neighbors got a stupid candy bar :( Super expensive mistake :( Does the weather have anything to do with it?
      • Not sure what could have gone wrong. I personally like this recipe. It's almost the same but you stir the brown sugar and butter while it's boiling. Check it out. It uses graham crackers instead of saltines.
