Chocolate Almond Roca Bar

"My colleague Grace made up these these wonderful gift boxes of goodies including this recipe. These are so good and when I found out how easy they are to make, I was sold! Personally I like to use semi sweet chocolate chips, but that is personal preference. Split you wafers before placing in the pan but fit them tightly together--the grahams that split to approx 1x2 inches are ideal, but cut them to the size you like. After you have made the almond roca and cooled the tray, put it in the freezer for only 10 minutes to really solidify the chocolate. Then remove from freezer and flip the whole tray so you can see where the graham wafer splits are. It is then very easy to just slice gently with a knife and you get perfect cut pieces. I store mine in a tin box in the fridge, but if you have chocoholics they won't last so just put them out on a plate!"

    Oh Bergy why did you post this. It is so easy to make and just too easy to eat!! I followed the recipe and then used a pizza cutter to cut into squares. What a great desert and snack idea!!

    Very good and easy, I made the mistake however of splitting the grahams into 2 halves, instead of the perforated 4. When I went to cut the finished product with a pizza cutter, the preperforated seems split also and so my squares were not very pretty, next time would split grahams into 4 so peices would come out more evenly and hold together better.

    Very easy and delicious! I didn't see the (not margerine) until I was well into the recipe, so used it and it seemed to be okay. Next time I'll use butter, I promise!!

    Years ago I worked very hard to learn to make a good Almond Roca. I found this recipe recently and gave it a try. <br/><br/>It is OUTSTANDING!!!! My family prefers it to my old recipe for candy. I am shocked at how easy this is to make. It is easier to make than Rice Crispie Cake. <br/><br/>I took the first batch to work to see what my co-workers had to say. Then LOVED it!!<br/><br/>I added a couple more tablespoons of brown sugar with the second batch that I made, just to crisp the candy up a little.<br/><br/>5*


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
