  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Sprinkle 1/2 the chocolate and 1/2 the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Melt sugar and butter together in a stainless steel pan over low heat; increase heat to medium, stirring constantly, until boiling. Heat mixture to 310 degrees F (155 degrees C) or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads, 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Pour butter-sugar mixture over chocolate and almonds on baking sheet. Sprinkle remaining chocolate and almonds over butter-sugar mixture. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Break into pieces.

  • Cook's Note:
  • You must stir the butter and sugar mixture constantly, otherwise the mixture will burn. Also, your butter may separate and go back together before it is complete. This is not an easy recipe, if your stove is inconsistent it may not turn out.

This us the same recipe I make every year for Christmas. The only thing I do differently is use milk chocolate chip and put about a 1/4 cup of chop almond in the butter and sugar just before I pour it over the chocolate. My family loves this so I have to make it.

This did not turn out for me at all.The butter seperated. The ingredients are too expensive to take a chance on and waste. Not recommended.

Delicious and simple. I use 12 ounces of good dark chocolate. I also sprinkle on smoked salt. That takes it to a whole 'nother place.
