In this post I would like to do a shout out to Imperial Sugar who provided each of the bloggers with a full case (40 lbs) of sugar. Imperial Sugar has been around since 1843 and is proud to use cane sugar that is non GMO. They have coupons on their website for you as well. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find Imperial Sugar here in Michigan but if you live in the Eastern States you should be able to find it at your local grocers.

I have a wonderful, decadent treat to share with you today.
Let's start with a layer of shortbread.

Sprinkle on some toasted Almonds.
Refrigerate until the fudge hardens, then cut into serving pieces.
Sit back, pour a cup of coffee or a glass of milk and YUM!!

1 1/4 c. flour
1 (12 oz) pkg semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 t. almond extract
1 c. sliced almonds, toasted
Beat butter and sugar together in the large bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add the flour and mix well. With floured hands, press mixture evenly into a greased 13x9" baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
Melt chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract. Spread evenly over the baked, cooled shortbread.
