Almond treatsAlmond treats are a combination of chewy and crispy because of the marshmallows and rice krispies.  If you like chocolate and almonds, you will love these almond treats because they are delicious.   Take these to any gathering or serve to friends and family and you will be asked for the recipe.  They keep well in the refrigerator for days and can be heated in the microwave.  I love them anytime I want a bite of something sweet during the day.  These almond treats are great with coffee or milk as a snack.  Be sure to check out our recipe for caramel cashew clusters, too.

Almond treats are a great snack for anytime.

Crust:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter or 8 tablespoons or 1 stick, softened

1 teaspoon almond extract (can use vanilla extract)

2 egg yolks

3 cups miniature marshmallows

In a large bowl using a mixer combine all crust ingredients except marshmallows.  Mix until like coarse crumbs.  Press into an ungreased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle on marshmallows and bake 5 more minutes until marshmallows puff up.  Remove from oven and let cool.

Topping:

3/4 cup light corn syrup

1/4 cup butter or 4 tablespoons

2 cups chocolate chips

1 teaspoon almond extract (can use vanilla extract)

2 cups rice krispies cereal

1 cup chopped almonds

Remove and stir in almond extract, cereal and almonds.  Spoon and spread over marshmallows.  Makes about 20 to 25 pieces depending on size you cut them.  Enjoy!
