Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup water
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I usually eye ball this till it's well coated)

  2. Mix sugar, butter, and water in a large sauce pan.
  3. Cook until tanish colored (276°F), stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
  4. Pour over the almonds, spreading quickly until evenly distributed.
  5. Cool slightly and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top.
  6. Let stand 1 minute and spread chocolate out.
  7. Cool and break into pieces.
  8. Store in an airtight container in a cool place for 1-2 months.
  9. Cook time is not listed as it depends on how long it takes to reach 276°F.

I am a vendor at Farmer's Market in Los Angeles, CA. I made this for my customers and they just loved it. Simple and very easy to make thanks for posting.

Really good, makes a lot. This is to add to xmas candy gifts and I'm sure it will be appreciated. Anytime I make a recipe with a sugar-butter mixture like this I always think--NOT a recipe for kids to make, a potentially dangerous one and pay attention while you are doing it.

Wow! This recipe is absolutely delicious. My bf and I couldn't get enough of these. The only change I made was that I cooked it to 300 degree so it would reach hard crack stage. It turned out beautifullu. Thanks soooo much for this yumma-licious recipe. Almond Roca is my fave!!!
