Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 12 cup almonds, finely chopped


  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the butter, sugar and 1 cup chopped almonds. Stir constantly until mixture boils, then do not stir or shake. Heat to 300 to 310°F (149 to 154°C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.
  2. Pour onto a large buttered cookie sheet. Immediately press chocolate chips onto the hot candy. As the chocolate melts, spread it into a coating over the candy.
  3. Sprinkle finely chopped almonds over the top; cool, and break into uneven pieces.
