Excellent! The only change is that I would only bring it to 290F (soft crack stage). Make sure you use a cast iron pan - very important. i put 1/2 the almonds in the mix and the other 1/2 sprinkled over the melted chocolate at the end. recommended: score the roca before it hardens completely, chill in fridge then break along score lines and store at room temperature.
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- 1 1⁄4 cups white sugar
