2 packages graham crackers
1 1/2 cubes of butter
1 lb of chopped raw whole almonds (I buy mine from Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate (for drizzling on top)
Line 16.5" x 11.5" jelly roll pan with foil.
Place graham crackers end-to-end to cover the entire surface.
In medium saucepan, melt butter and mix in sugar until thick, like pie filing - approximately 3 minutes.
Mix in chopped almonds.
Spoon/spread almond mixture over graham crackers.
Bake 15 min at 350 degrees.
Cool completely. Drizzle with melted chocolate if desired.
Break into bite size pieces.
I hope you'll try this recipe! If you like almonds, you'll love this one!
Today, I was able to sneak out for a few hours and take a Copic Marker Technique Class at Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley. It was fun to attend a class and have some time to just sit and play. Below are the cards I made in the class.
The stamps the teacher used are from Stampingbella, the Uptown Girl collection - such fun images to color. I ended up buying these stamps from her too...
And if you haven't been to 4th street yet this holiday season...you must check it out. They've deck out the streets in tons of lights...
This month I was also busy coordinating a 2014 collaborative calendar for Catherine Moore with 13 wonderful artists. Each artist created a page for each month and Catherine designed the cover. This time we sent our images to a vendor to produce a professional 5"x5" spiral bound desk calendar. I want to show you a sneak peek, the wonderful cover created by Catherine. I will be able to order some extra calendars if you're interested in purchasing. I'll show more of the calendar pages in upcoming posts...stay tuned.
Can't believe Christmas is just a couple weeks away. Hope you're having a wonderful Holiday Season!
