Chocolate- Almond Toffee

This post may contain affiliate links.

You know the stuff… pink wrapping… chocolate & toffee rolled in almonds… Almond Roca? It’s just about my favorite thing in the whole world. Dangerous stuff that roca is. I can’t have it in my house for fear of a major gorge-fest.

I tempted danger though and made my own homemade Chocolate- Almond Toffee. Surely I could tuck it away in the freezer and resist temptation, right?

The recipe isn’t really complicated. Sugar, butter and corn syrup bubble away until turning caramel-colored. You must have a candy thermometer though to get the toffee part just right. Too cool and it won’t set correctly. Too hot and you’ll have burnt toffee.

When ready, the mixture is pulled from the heat and mixed with a handful toasted almonds.

The toffee is then poured onto a cookie sheet and quickly spread out. It will begin to set almost immediately. A short visit to the refrigerator will ensure that the toffee with harden enough for the next step.

Melted chocolate is spread upon the chilled toffee.

Toasted almonds are sprinkled on top of the chocolate and lightly pressed down to stick. Once hardened, the entire ‘sheet’ of toffee can be easily lifted off of the cookie sheet and broken apart into smaller pieces.

Ready for consumption… or packaging… or giving away… or freezing! I’m happy to say that my batch is safely stowed away in the depths of my freezer- awaiting the time that I put together my holiday goodie trays.

    The candy is so,so good! Last year I made it and everyone loved it. This year when I made it, I got impatient and only cooked it to 275 degrees, or soft crack stage. Now, that is what family and friends want. It’s New Year’s day and I’m making another batch to send to my grandson in Colorado.

    Divine and dangerous! Toffee is my downfall. I could probably polish off that whole batch myself!

    I absolutely adore toffee. I’ve never tried making it on my own though. You’re very inspiring and I might just try to one day, thanks!

    You’re so right about Almond Roca being dangerous stuff! I had my first taste around the Holidays a few years ago and, like you, I can’t have it in the house! The homemade version must be even better though, it looks fantastic. 🙂

    Oh, that looks delicious. I made some last year and tried to keep it hidden in the laundry room.
    Sadly, the old adage: “out of sight, out of mind” didn’t work for me.

    Hope you’ll have better luck.

    I have made it it is wonderful. I just place chocolate chips on top and they melt from the warmth of the mixture. Works wonderfully and saves time.
