READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 3 lbs.




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 10x15 inch baking pan with Reynolds Aluminum Foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine chopped almonds with 2 teaspoons of the chopped, fresh rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon fleur de sel, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Spread onto the foil lined baking pan and roast in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Cool almonds in the pan spreading almonds evenly over the bottom.
  • In a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium-low heat, stir sugar, butter, honey, fleur de sel, and 3/4 cup water until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is deep golden brown (300 degrees on a candy thermometer), 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully stir in the vanilla extract. Carefully pour the hot candy over the top of the roasted almonds in the foil lined pan. Let toffee cool at room temperature until set, at least 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl. Bring a few inches of water to a simmer in the bottom of double boiler or a pan that the bowl can nest in; remove the pan from the heat. Place chocolate over the heated water an let stand, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth, about 10 minutes.
  • Pour chocolate over cooled toffee and with a knife or spatula, spread the chocolate evenly.
  • Combine remaining 2 teaspoons of chopped, fresh rosemary with 1/2 teaspoon fleur de sel. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the top of the chocolate covered toffee and let stand at room temperature until chocolate is set (or chill about 30 minutes). Break candy into pieces and slide them off the foil into an airtight storage container. Can be stored at room temperature for 2 days or chilled up to one month.
