I love the look of this tasty treat for the holidays and something new!!
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons sugar
16 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
1/2 cup orange-flavored dried cranberries*
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
Line 2 baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside.
Melt butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until sizzling; add almonds and sugar. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until sugar melts and almonds are golden brown (4 to 6 minutes). Quickly spread onto 1 prepared baking sheet. Cool completely; coarsely chop.
Melt candy coating in large microwave-safe bowl according to package directions. Stir in chopped candied almonds, cranberries and orange zest. Immediately pour onto remaining prepared baking sheet; spread to 1/4-inch thickness.
Refrigerate until firm (about 30 minutes). Cut or break into small pieces. Store in container with tight-fitting lid.
*Substitute any flavor sweetened dried cranberries.
