Almond Roca - Pioneer Woman

16 ounces, weight Butter, Melted
16 ounces, weight Granulated Sugar
3 ounces, fluid Water
1 teaspoon Salt
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups toasted almonds

Preparation Instructions
*Necessary Equipment: Candy Thermometer*

Combine butter, sugar, water, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.

Cook over moderate heat, stirring gently, until candy thermometer registers 298 degrees. I mostly eyeballed this to get the right color.

Remove from heat and add toasted almonds until well combined.

Pour the mixture onto cookie sheet. Use a heatproof rubber spatula or offset spatula to spread quickly before the toffee sets. Spread thin. Sprinkle Chocolate Chips on top, once melted spread. Top with more toasted almonds.

Allow to set, then break into bite-size pieces.

Store in an airtight container.

The best almond roca. No seperating.
