    These look DEELISH! I'm a big sugar cookie fan as far as holiday baking. But that's probably because that's all I'm confident enough to bake. This looks amazing, and I have a feeling I could make this! You make it looks so easy. And my husband would love me! :)
    • Dawn says:
      Oh, I make shortbread, it's my mom and grandmother's recipe. I usually box them up for teacher gifts too! The almond bark is pretty darn good but I do like the balance of a not so sweet treat too!
  3. nomnombearinyvr says:
    That looks amazing! It's like homemade almond roca! I've made something similar but with a graham cracker base, but everything else is the same.
  4. Angela Mitchell says:
    I've never tried making Almond bark before but I loved it the few times I've tried it. I'm going to have to make it this year - it looks pretty easy:)

    What soda crackers..for real..sounds interesting and I have all these ingredients..I have to try this..no one will ever guess soda crackers…I make cookies with potato chips so why not! lol
  6. prairiebelle says:
    Thank you for sharing. This is perfect for the holidays and even nice for gift giving in a mason jar with ribbon (my neighbors will be happy)
  7. Lee-Ann says:
    Every year I say I am going to make this.... your recipe seems like I can! Love when others make this, would really like to do it myself. Cheers!
  8. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:
    Do you think this would work with walnuts instead of almonds? Almonds were always mum's favourite but I'm not keen on them - well only as marzipan :-)
  9. Erika E says:
    I can't wait to try this. You had my interest when you said it tastes like Skor bars! I like how few ingredients are required. That usually determines whether I try a recipe or not. Long ingredient lists make me shy away.
  10. Krista M says:
    I have never heard of using soda crackers before~ that's an innovative idea! This would be a nice treat to put out over the holidays. The chocolate on top looks so good!
  11. Aeryn Lynne says:
    WHUT! Soda Crackers?? Really?! LOL, I would have never have guessed that as part of the recipe. I'm such a huge addict for Skor bars, so I can't wait to try this recipe out, thanks for the inspiration! <3
  12. Lisa says:
    You mentioned that you put the skor bars in the freezer, for how long can you freeze them and does it change the texture or taste, thanks.
    • Dawn says:
      Hi Lisa, I mentioned allowing to cool because you want the caramel and chocolate to be set but I have put them in the freezer for Christmas and they were fine. Taste and texture wise. Thanks for stopping by!
  13. Lacey says:
    These look amazing! I am excited to try them out for Christmas goodies! How long do they last? Whether I put them in the freezer or not? Thanks!!
    • Dawn says:
      Hi Lacey, thanks for stopping by! Haha if you can get them to last past an hour, I will be surprised. They will last the week without freezing and in the freezer they are good for a month I would say. I hope that helps.
  14. Chris says:
    I'm am having trouble finding the recipe could you pls let me know the basic directions. I can see the ingredients and measurements. After seeing the reviews I'm so excited to try it. Thank you
    • Dawn Trudeau says:
      Hi Karen, the crackers do not dissolve but become part of the candy. The photo is using the best looking pieces of candy because it doesn't look all that neat. It's super delicious and easy to make. Give it a try and let me know what you think. ps... I do throw in almonds sometimes because I love nuts!
  15. CLK says:
    Your recipe states to use soda crackers, but the photo shows saltines. those are two completely different things, which do you actually use?
  16. Caroline says:
    I expected the toffee to be soft, but mine was hard and sugary. Is it supposed to be like this, of did I do something wrong?! When I put the sugar layer over the saltine crackers, I was afraid it would become soggy, but when it cools it crisps up nicely.
