Ingredients

  • 1 7.5 oz bag plain pretzel crisps
  • 2 12 oz bags semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup slivered almonds toasted and divided
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp solid vegetable shortening

Instructions

  • Before you begin: Preheat the oven to 350°F and toast the slivered almonds for 6-8 minutes, until lightly golden. Cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, using a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water, or a double boiler, melt together the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening until the chocolate is completely smooth.
  • While the chocolate is melting, line a baking sheet with wax paper, and spread the pretzel crisps evenly on the paper.
  • Sprinkle the marshmallows and 3/4 cup of toasted almonds over the pretzel crisps. Chop the remaining almonds to sprinkle on top.
  • Pour the chocolate on top and using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon spread it covering everything evenly.
  • Sprinkle with remaining chopped almonds and place the pan into the refrigerator for 2 hours or until set.
  • Cut or break into pieces.
