Directions

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the butter, sugar and 1 cup chopped almonds. Stir constantly until mixture boils, then do not stir or shake. Heat to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.
  2. Pour onto a large buttered cookie sheet. Immediately press chocolate chips onto the hot candy. As the chocolate melts, spread it into a coating over the candy.
  3. Sprinkle finely chopped almonds over the top; cool, and break into uneven pieces.

Big hit at a church function. I did add a little water to the butter/sugar mixture. It wasn't melting properly. And I also used semi-sweet chocolate chips since that's what I had on hand. Everyone loved it-there was nothing left.

Great recipe, Angel. I used sliced toasted almonds. It changed the texture of the candy to allow for a crushing sensation rather than a crunchy one in the mouth. I did this for the people on my Christmas list that have dentures or trouble chewing. When the chocolate was arm, I pressed toasted crushed walnuts crumbs into it. Yummy!Thanks for sharing!
