I found this recipe and kept loosing it--and let me tell you, you don't want to lose this delicious toffee recipe. They are quick and easy, but make sure you have a candy thermometer before you start.

I tweaked this a bit. I made the toffee as directed (chopping my pecans moderately fine with hand grinder) but when it had started to set up but was still hot, I scattered 1/2 bag (~1 cup) milk chocolate chips on top. I let them sit about 30 sec to melt and then spread over the top. I then sprinkled the top with finely ground (like coarse cornmeal) almonds (~1/2 cup). It looks and tastes like almond roca this way.
