Original recipe yields 5 dozen
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 lov..." See moreed it-there was nothing left."
" I could not get the glob of sugar up to temp on low and when I turned it up a little it turned very brown. I had to throw that batch out. I thought maybe it was a misprint on the butter needing 3/4 ..." See morelb instead of 3/4 cups. This actually worked quite well. I did have to drain off a little butter so I am thinking 2-2 1/2 sticks would be perfect. I also continued stirring until it reach temp. It was a huge hit and it tasted great. I just wonder what angels recipe taste like? Mine is just like toffee."
