“My Aunt developed this easy recipe, and it has become one of my favourites for holiday baking, and year-round indulgence. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 package toppables cracker
  • 14-12 cup slivered almonds
  • 12 cup milk chocolate (chips, wafers, bars... whatever!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cover medium sized cookie sheet in aluminum foil, shiny side up. Neatly line up the Toppables crackers over the foil so that it is completely covered by the crackers.
  3. Melt the butter in a pot or saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Add the sugar when butter is melted, and stir slowly and constantly. Continue until the mixture comes to a rapid boil and stir for a minute or two.
  5. Remove from heat and immediately pour over the crackers. Spread the mixture as evenly as possible.
  6. Sprinkle as many almonds as you see fit on top of the crackers.
  7. Bake in the oven for 4 minutes.
  8. While baking, melt chocolate on low to medium heat. (I simply put a small amount of water in a pan and put a small pot inside the pan, with the chocolate. This melts the chocolate easily and you don't have to worry about the burning of the chocolate or having any special equipment.).
  9. When you take the cookie sheet out of the oven, simple drizzle the chocolate over the crackers until you get the amount you like. (Eat the rest! Haha!).
  10. Put in the fridge for a while, until it is hard enough to break into pieces and serve! (There is no definitive seving amount - you can break it into as many or as few pieces as you want!).
