Cinnamon Almond Bars

One of my favorite things about fall is the ability to find my favorite type of chip- Hershey's CINNAMON chips- in the grocery store. I buy lots of them because they are so yummy in oatmeal cookies. I decided to try something new the other night and came up with this bar recipe. Not only do they taste great- they smell fabulous while they are cooking!

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 cup white vanilla baking chips
1 cup cinnamon chips
1 cup slivered almonds
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray. Unroll dough into 2 long rectangles. Place in pan; press over bottom and 1/2 inch up sides to form crust.
Bake 5 minutes. Sprinkle chips and nuts evenly over crust. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over top. Bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen. Cool 1 hour. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until chocolate is set before cutting into bars.

TIP OF THE DAY: To change up these bars, change the cinnamon chips to chocolate and the almonds to walnuts.
