1/3 cup whole or slivered almonds

3 tablespoons sugar

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla


28 caramels

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts, almonds and sugar in 5-cup blender container or food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Cover; blend at high speed until finely ground. (Do not grind into paste.)

  3. STEP 3

    Combine butter and vanilla in bowl until well mixed. Add ground nut mixture; stir just until dough holds together. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Place onto baking sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine caramels and half & half in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; gently stir 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts into caramel mixture. Spoon onto cooled crust; spread to coat evenly. Cool 30 minutes.

  5. STEP 5

    Melt chocolate chips and oil in 1-quart saucepan over low heat 3-5 minutes or until melted and smooth. Drizzle over tart. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired.
