Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 1 cup chopped almonds

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

  • ½ cup finely chopped almonds

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the butter, sugar and 1 cup chopped almonds. Stir constantly until mixture boils, then do not stir or shake. Heat to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.

  2. Pour onto a large buttered cookie sheet. Immediately press chocolate chips onto the hot candy. As the chocolate melts, spread it into a coating over the candy.

  3. Sprinkle finely chopped almonds over the top; cool, and break into uneven pieces.
