What would you make?

I tried to make matzo brittle from the Chow recipe, but it was an epic fail. I realized it wasn't going to work before I got to the final stage of adding toasted sliced almonds to the top. I was making a double batch. So now I have two cups of toasted sliced almonds, and I don't have any ideas for what to make with them. Do you?

Oh, and I forgot to add - I used up all of my brown sugar, so that's an ingredient I don't have available to me.

    Scandinavian Almond Bars from allrecipes.com.
    I can post a link when I'm back on my computer.
    They are delicious.

      Why not just eat them?

      It's only 2 cups.

        I could do that but I also have a bag of whole raw almonds, which I add daily to my yogurt, so I am already eating a fair amount of almonds. There are only two of us in the house, and DH probably won't eat them out of hand. He's a peanuts guy. I'd like to make something else to include in the sweets trays that I am giving away to friends and family.

          Well, then, how about almond brittle.

          Easy to make (sugar (white not brown), butter and slivered almonds) and they travel well which makes them perfect as gifts.

            Could work. I've made nut brittle successfully before, just not with sliced almonds, always whole nuts. But why not, right? I'd just be subbing one brittle for another. Thanks!
