FOR CRUST:
COMBINE
1 1/2 cups mixed nuts, almonds and sugar in 5-cup blender container or food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Cover; blend at high speed until finely ground. (Do not grind into paste.) Stir together butter and vanilla extract in medium bowl until well mixed. Add ground nut mixture; stir just until dough holds together.

BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

FOR TOPPING:
COMBINE
caramels and half-and-half in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; gently stir 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts and brandy extract into caramel mixture. Spoon onto cooled crust; spread to coat evenly. Cool for 30 minutes.

MELT morsels and vegetable oil in 1-quart saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth. Drizzle over tart. Serve with whipped cream.
