Directions:
In a heavy 4quart saucepan, melt butter. Add sugar and salt and stir till hard crack, stirring constantly. Add 1 c whole almonds and 1/2 c semi chopped almonds and stir 90-120 seconds. Remove from heat. Add vanilla.

Pour on greased (Pam works fine) marble slab or sheet tray (cookie sheet size). Spread with a wooden spoon. Top with 4 hersheys bars. When melted, spread with knife, top with chopped nuts.

Set in fridge overnight. Pick up and shake off excess nuts. Turn over. Melt 5 small hersheys bars and spread on back if desired.

Break into pieces. Store in airtight container.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Lining the sheet pan with foil before greasing it makes removing the toffee much easier.

If the mixture separates before it reaches the hard crack stage it's because it heated up too quickly before the sugar could adequately disolve. Add a couple of Tbsp of water and stir it in and start cooking again. You can add up to about 5 T water. This worked great for me. I found this remedy on the internet.
