Easy Homemade Almond Roca

I love almond roca!! I found this copycat recipe at massrecipes.com and it tastes exactly like the real thing to me! Mmmmm.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over Medium heat, melt butter in a large pot.
  2. Add corn syrup, water and sugar to pot and cook until temp reaches 290 degrees OR until the mixture becomes the color of a brown paper bag (about 15-20 minutes) stirring constantly with a wooden spoon (mixture will rise and bubble quite a bit).
  3. Remove from heat and Stir in 1/2 of the Almonds.
  4. Turn mixture onto a greased cookie sheet WITH EDGES!
  5. While the mixture is cooling, melt the chocolate over low flame until all the chips are gone, and chocolate is smooth.
  6. Score the Almond butter mixture into the shape you desire (I just scored into rectangle shapes).
  7. Pour the hot chocolate over the almond mixture and spread evenly.
  8. Sprinkle with remaining almonds and allow candy to cool completely and chocolate to harden before breaking apart and serving.
  9. Note: I let mine refrigerate over night after breaking the into squares, and they had a better texture this way, we thought.

where it says sugar it actually means brown sugar white sugar will only brown if you burn it also may not harden up to a candy consistency. so again use brown sugar not white or granulated sugar.
