2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup slivered almonds

1/4 cup sugar


1 1/4 cups Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

6 ounces dark chocolate&, chopped

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until sizzling; add almonds and 1/4 cup sugar. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, 4-5 minutes or until sugar melts and almonds are golden brown. Immediately spread onto waxed paper. Cool completely; break into small pieces.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine whipping cream, 1/4 cup sugar and brown sugar in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 7-9 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate with whisk until smooth. Add butter and almond extract; continue whisking until smooth. Stir in caramelized almonds. Cool slightly to thicken. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  3. STEP 3

    Store covered in refrigerator up to 1 week. To reheat, place sauce in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring often, just until heated through.

Tip #1

- Dark chocolate is available in bars in the baking aisle of the supermarket. For an even darker chocolate flavor, use 3 ounces unsweetened bittersweet chocolate and 3 ounces dark sweetened chocolate.

Tip #2

- Sauce can be used over ice cream or as a fondue dip for dried fruit, marshmallows and cookies.
