2 1/2 cups almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped, divided
1 cup (2 sticks) butter

Sprinkle 1 1/4 cup nuts over the bottom of a well-greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

Melt the butter in a medium, heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 280 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 7 minutes.

Pour the hot mixture over the nuts; let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with morsels. Let stand until morsels melt and become shiny and soft, about 5 minutes. Spread evenly.

Since the show aired I have made this recipe 2 times. I gave some away to teachers for Valentines Day. I've gotten 5 requests for Paula's recipe link. It is super easy and so fabulous! I just used all the nuts for the bottom of the pan.

I was reviewing the recipe for the Chocolate Almond Brickle. If you only use 1 1/4 cups of the almonds what do you need 2 1/2 cups for in the recipe? The recipe does not call for any more nuts. Please explain. Thanks
