To toast almonds, place
them on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for
1 to 4 minutes, stirring every minute. Timing is
determined by wattage of your microwave. In 1-quart
wide-mouth glass jar, gently layer and pack ingredients
in the order listed (yes, there are two layers of
biscuit and baking mix). If there is any space left
after adding the last ingredient, add more baking chips
or nuts to fill the jar. Place lid on top.
