  1. Sprinkle almonds on a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 300 degrees F for 15 minutes or until toasted and golden brown; remove from the oven and set aside. In a saucepan over low heat, cook butter and sugar for 5 minutes. Add water and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 300 degrees F (hard-crack stage). Quickly pour over almonds. Sprinkle chips on top; let stand for 1-2 minutes or until melted. Spread and swirl chocolate over candy. Cool completely; break into pieces.

I didn't think this tasted that good at all. I also think if you do make it, it needs to be kept refrigerated or else it gets really gooey and runny.

This is the best recipe for almond roca I have ever found. I do use a smaller pan because I can't get it to spread all over a 15x10 pan. Also I cut the chocolate covered toffee with a pizza cu...

This is a much better way to fix this candy. By putting the almonds under the toffee rather than sprinkling on top of the melted chocolate keeps all of the almonds in the candy. Great idea!

I used to make candy with my grandma, so I was quite excited to find this recipe. It turned out great( just finished making two batches). I followed the recipe exactly, but I changed one step. I...

This is an awesome recipe. I followed the directions right to a tee and it was divine! The only thing I did differently was use all semi-sweet chocolate chips because I didn't have any vanilla ...

I called this my "delicious disaster". I substituted milk chocolate chips for semi sweet and they did not melt onto the candy. Next time...and there will be a next time, I will melt the chocol...

My friend always made almond roca but refused to share the recipe, so I had to suffer without. Now I can make it myself! This is amazing and so easy. I halved the butter like someone else sugges...

I've made this with salted butter and unsalted butter and I prefer to use salted with this recipe. It is a wonderful recipe that does indeed taste just like the roca you buy in the pink tins. ...
