If you’ve never tried Almond Roca, then you’re in for a treat. It is one of the easiest candies you can make, and when you see how easy it is, you’ll be amazed that people pay so much for it in stores. If you have the ingredients to make it and the time to melt them together, you can have a batch ready in less than 30 minutes!
Serves 10-12 servings Prep Time 5 minutes Total Time 30 minutes
- 340 g (1 cup) raw honey
- 227 g (1 cup) butter
- 150 g (1.5 cup) roasted unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
- 200 g (1 heaping cup) chocolate chips
Directions:Line your sheet pan with parchment paper. Make sure this is done before you start cooking the toffee as you will need to transfer your toffee mixture quickly once it is ready.
Make the honey almond toffee: Combine 340 g honey and 227 g butter into a heavy pot and cook at medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add 125 g almonds and stir continuously until mixture has reached 160 degrees.
Remove from heat and pour into your lined sheet pan. Use your spoon/spatula to spread the toffee thinly and evenly across the entire pan.
Add chocolate layer: While the toffee is still hot, evenly sprinkle 200 g chocolate chips across the surface of the toffee. As the chocolate chips melt, spread the chocolate in an even layer across the top of the toffee with the back of your spoon/spatula.
Sprinkle remaining 25 g almonds across the surface of the chocolate.
Let it cool to room temperature. Once cool, you can remove the Honey Almond Roca from the sheet pan and break it into small pieces. Enjoy!
