Almond Rocca

For as long as I remember we had Almond Roca as one of the many Candies my Grandmother and Mother made for Christmas.

Almond Roca

2-1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1-1/4 cup BUTTER (not margarine) = 2-1/2 cubes
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups chopped almonds
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 large bar milk chocolate grated (the chocolate is added to the finished product, do NOT mix in with the above items)

Put; sugar, water, butter, salt in a deep pan and stir continuously and bring to a boil. Once boiling add 1/2 the almonds. Boil to 275* or soft crack stage… use a candy thermometer.

Remove from heat and add the rest of the almonds and 1/2 of the walnuts, leaving half of the walnuts to put on top.

Pour into a 9″x13″ dish, spread the chocolate evenly on top and add the rest of the walnuts.

Let cook and cut into squares before completely hardening or it breaks when trying to cut.
