  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Almonds for sprinkling


  • Combine the first 3 ingredients and cook on high, stirring constantly through 3 stages:
    1. Runny
    2. “Cheesy” — it will look like melted white cheese
    3. Runny and smooth, caramel brown color
  • Make sure you have the fan on your stove going, because you’ll probably set off the smoke alarm towards the end. 😉
  • When it is runny, smooth and caramel brown in color, remove it from the heat and add the almonds. Stir until combined and pour the mixture onto greased cookie sheets. Spread it into an even layer. It will harden as it cools.
  • While it is still warm, sprinkle chocolate chips on top and let them melt enough to get soft. Spread the chocolate in an even layer across the candy. While the chocolate is still “wet,” sprinkle the finely chopped almonds on top.
  • At this point, while it is still warm andsoft, you can score the candy with a butter knife to make it break evenly, orjust let it harden and break it into rustic pieces.
  • Store in airtight containers. Enjoy!

Almond Roca introduction

It only takes about 25 minutes to prepare Almond Roca! Once you taste the candy, oh, this is delicious!

Almond Roca is the most delicious sweet with toffee and nuts filled with chopped almonds and topped with melted chocolate and more chopped almonds. Unreal!

Almond Roca is perfect for all of you who are gluten intolerant.

Homemade candy looks great when you cut it up and serve on a cutting board.

Follow a few instructions for the most successful preparation of homemade Almond Roca sweets:

Cook sugar and butter over medium heat, stirring constantly with a metal wire. Do not increase the heat, the sugar may burn and the milk fat may separate from the butter.

Track your candy thermometer. Do not allow the temperature to exceed 160 degrees and the butter will not separate.

Slowly stir in the sugar and butter mixture so it doesn’t pop out and burn you while you make the candy.

The mixture of butter and sugar should be light brown when the candy is in a state of hard cracking.

Using a non-stick pan has proven to be the best way to make the perfect Almond Roca and easy to clean. Once the candies are made, place the candies on a baking tray in the freezer for about 30 minutes to allow the candies to half freeze. Then put the sweets in freezer bags and store until needed. Semi-freezing prevents sweets from sticking to the freezer.
