I thought this was good, although I probably really didn't need a recipe for this. I made 1/2 recipe and used dark chocolate and butter instead of shortening. Almost all nuts today come roasted, so I didn't bother toasting them further. When they aren't raw, cooking them further almost makes them taste burnt in my opinion. To save time, I also melted the chocolate chips in the microwave. My only issue with the recipe is like most all chocolate today, even though I used dark, the chocolate still tastes so sweet to me. Using a salted nut, may have helped with that. My chocolate wasn't perfectly smooth after adding the nuts either, but unless it is commercial it is to be expected. I liked the idea of saving half of the almonds to put them on top. I think, it could have used even more nuts and cashews would have been pretty good too. I broke it into about 1 1/2" pieces for a treat when the chocolate cravings hit.
