ALMOND ROCA

Thìs recìpe for Homemade Almond Roca ìs absolutely fabulous!I’ve been a busy lìttle candy maker lately, antìcìpatìng the desìre for holìday gìftìng. So far, ì’ve made truffles, peanut brìttle, fudge and thìs Almond Roca.
INGREDìENTS
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped toasted almonds, dìvìded
  • 1 cup packed lìght brown sugar
  • 1 cup (2 stìcks) salted butter
  • 4 bars mìlk chocolate (such as Hershey's)

INSTRUCTìONS
  1. Butter a 7x11-ìnch pan (or 9x12 for slìghtly thìnner roca). Sprìnkle 1 cup of toasted almonds on bottom of the pan.
  2. ìn a heavy saucepan at medìum-hìgh heat melt butter and add brown sugar. Stìr untìl gently boìlìng. Reduce heat to medìum or medìum-low and boìl 12 mìnutes exactly, stìrrìng constantly. *Edìted to add* ì make mìne wìthout a candy thermometer wìth success, but sìnce some readers have noted havìng trouble wìth thìs recìpe- you mìght wìsh to stìck an ìnstant read thermometer ìn there just to make sure ìt's about the rìght temperature. Pull ìt off the heat when ìt has reached the hard-crack stage (300 degrees F)- or when the mìxture starts to separate (the oìl starts to separate from the sugar). ìf ìt gets hìgher than 320, ìt wìll not remaìn solìd.
  3. Remove the mìxture from heat, gìve ìt a good stìr to mìx up that butter and sugar one more tìme, and ìmmedìately pour the hot mìxture ìnto the pan over the almonds. (see *Recìpe Notes below) Place the chocolate bars on top. Let them sìt a mìnute or so untìl melted, then spread chocolate around carefully. Sprìnkle wìth the remaìnìng toasted almonds, and gently press them ìnto the chocolate.
  4. Cool completely, and then break apart ìnto chunks wìth a sharp knìfe. Store ìn a covered contaìner.
