Almond Roca the easy way


I do  not care much for baking and such….but if the recipe is super easy and tastes FABULOUS, well…then I am willing to go to the fuss of it all.  However, this recipe is so easy that my Golden Retriever puppy could make it! In fact I have requested that he be the one to bring it to the Christmas get together at my husbands sisters house.

He is SUCH a snob about his baking though....he won't share any of his secrets!

Here is the recipe

Almond Roca

1 Lb of real butter

1/2 c Karo light syrup

1 c sugar

1 1/2 c chopped almonds

1/2 c ground almonds

1 pkg (12oz) chocolate chips

Melt butter over medium high heat in heavy skillet or dutch oven. Add karo syrup and sugar stir till dissolved.  Add chopped almonds.  Cook 12 -14 minutes or until mixture turns toffee brown.  Pour onto cookie sheet.  Sprinkle on Chocolate chips after a minute or two spread the melted chips.  Then sprinkle on the ground almonds.

It will look like this when your done.

Keep frozen.  Then crack apart and serve.

Mine didn't crack apart like it should...didn't cook the Karo, sugar, butter mixture long enough, and Clifford neglected to tell me that part was crucial to the cracking of the end result! I TOLD you he was a baking snob.

Keep frozen until ready to eat.


Thats it!  It is AMAZING.
