This toffee is awesome, and really easy to make.

Top Review by JustJudy

This toffee tastes almost exactly like storebought Almond Roca! -:¦:- My only suggestion would be to cut the amount of butter to 3/4 cup and increase the amount of chocolate squares to 5. -:¦:- FYI, I used slivered almonds which sort of meets the "unblanched" criteria and they worked out great. THANKS, Mrs. Nestleroad!
