“This microwave recipe was given to me by my mom about 20 years ago. It is sooo easy to make and tastes delicious!”
READY IN:
15mins
SERVES:
10-20
YIELD:
20 pieces approx. - depends on size
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter (keep extra available)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 cup water
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate
  • sliced almonds (optional)

Directions

  1. Rub the top of a microwavable mixing bowl with (extra) butter. Place butter into bowl. Pour sugar directly on butter. Add salt and water.
  2. Cook approximately 7-8 minutes (sometimes I have seen some microwaves take up to 12 minutes). Start watching at this point so as not to overcook. Candy is done when it's the color of a Heath bar or brown sugar.
  3. Pour mixture over sliced almonds on a buttered cookie sheet. Don't scrape the bowl! Cool!
  4. Top with melted chocolate (and more almonds if you wish) and let cool some more.
  5. Break into pieces and serve. (I use a regular table knife -- just be sure not to cut into your cookie sheet!) Enjoy!
