Serves: 20 Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients



  • 1½ cups coarsely-chopped almonds
  • 16 oz. light brown sugar
  • 1 lb. butter
  • 24 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips


Instructions

1

Sprinkle ¾ cup coarsely chopped almonds onto the bottom of an 18x13 inch cookie sheet. Set aside.

2

In a 2 qt. sauce pan, combine sugar and butter over medium high heat while stirring frequently for several minutes unit bubbly and thick. Use a candy thermometer and cook until 290 degrees F. Watch carefully after 280 degrees F to prevent it from burning. Once it has reached 290 degrees F, remove from heat.

3

Pour candy evenly on top of the almonds in cookie sheet. Let stand for a few minutes.

4

Melt chocolate chips in microwave with 1 tsp. shortening or oil to help keep it smooth. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment, until completely melted and smooth.

5

Cover candy with layer of chocolate and sprinkle remaining almonds evenly over the top of chocolate layer.

6

Allow to set up for a few hours. I place mine in the fridge when I need them to cool faster.

7

Once completely set up and hardened, break into pieces using a knife.

8

This recipe makes about 2 lbs of candy and is great for gifts!
