    Almond Butter Crunch
    (tastes like 'Heath' Candy Bars)

    2 Tbs. butter
    1/2 c. slivered almonds
    1/2 c. butter, cut into pieces
    1-1/2 c. white sugar
    3 Tbs. water
    1 Tbs. light corn syrup
    3 oz. bar of chocolate or bag of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate
    chips)

    Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil and butter the foil; set aside.

    Place 2 Tbs. butter in a shallow glass bowl. Microwave on HIGH about 60
    seconds or until butter melts. Stir in slivered almonds. Microwave on HIGH
    about 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until almonds are browned. Drain on
    paper towels and sprinkle on foil lined baking sheet in a 12X8 inch area.

    In a 2 quart pyrex measure or microwavable mixing bowl, combine remaining
    ingredients except chocolate. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until sugar
    dissolves and mixture can be stirred smooth. Place a microwave candy
    thermometer in the mixture (I never did this... guess I just had a knack)
    and microwave on HIGH for 5-6 minutes or until temp reaches 300F.

    Immediately pour the mixture over the almonds on the baking sheet. Let
    stand for 1 minute, then arrange the chocolate on top. As the chocolate
    melts over the toffee mixture, spread it with a knife to cover the top of
    the candy. Chill mixture to set, then break it into pieces. Makes 1 lb.
