Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups almonds
  • 2 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 13 cup water
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I usually eye ball this till it's well coated)

  2. Mix sugar, butter, and water in a large sauce pan.
  3. Cook until tanish colored (276°F), stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
  4. Pour over the almonds, spreading quickly until evenly distributed.
  5. Cool slightly and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top.
  6. Let stand 1 minute and spread chocolate out.
  7. Cool and break into pieces.
  8. Store in an airtight container in a cool place for 1-2 months.
  9. Cook time is not listed as it depends on how long it takes to reach 276°F.
