    Almond Roca

    List of Ingredients

    2 c. (1 lb.) butter
    2 c. sugar
    1/2 c. whole almonds
    1 lg. pkg. chocolate chips
    1/2 c. walnuts, ground in blender

    Melt butter over high heat. Add sugar stirring until it foams up well. Continue over high heat, adding almonds. Continue to cook, stirring constantly until mixture is color of mahogany and all sugar is melted. Take off the heat for a moment if it starts to smoke. Stir as you take it off the heat permanently and pour quickly into your biggest flat pan with sides. Tilt to spread evenly. After 5 minutes pour on chocolate chips. When they are melted a bit, spread them over the top of the hot mixture with a rubber scraper. Scatter ground walnuts over the top, shaking to distribute evenly. Candy is thoroughly cooled when chocolate is dull looking, about 3 hours.
