  • In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sweetened condensed milk, and salt; stir until moistened. Stir in 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds.

  • Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan (if mixture is very sticky, pat in with moistened fingers). Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup sliced almonds, patting in gently.

  • Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely in pan.

  • Remove from pan; peel off foil, and cut into 16 squares with a serrated knife.

I ground the graham crackers down to flour. They came out like a dream! Yum!

I added ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips and shredded coconut on top. I also used ground almonds to make the recipe go a little further. I baked for 15 minutes, inverted the pan, another 10 minutes, 4 more, 3 1/2 more minutes and another 3 ish. I was concerned about over cooking as one person mentioned. I have a small catering business. I love how simple this recipe is, and with such few ingredients. Delish!

Used chocolate chips and marshmallows on top. Super sweet, but my kids love them - like s'mores.

Easy, nice flavor, but didn't knock my socks off. I baked for 35 minutes and wish I had checked them earlier. Will likely choose a different recipe next time.

I couldn't find almonds so I used ground walnuts instead and I added 1/2 cup dried cranberries. I topped the top with ground walnuts and cranberries and baked them. Everyone raved about them at parties and I honestly liked them better this way. A. Benitez
