Copycat Almond Roca

Almond Roca is one of my ultimate favorites. Some how making it at home doesn’t seem as decadent as buying a big box of it from the store. This is a loved candy at Christmas time but why not have it at any time of the year!!

This recipe is from a friend of mine Sonia who graciously allowed me to share it with you all. What a fabulous treat to make for your family or a great gift for a dinner party for the hostess, a wonderful teacher gift, a great birthday treat. The list goes on and on why you should be making this scrumptious confection!!

I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!!

  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Sprinkle almonds on a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 300 degrees F for 15 minutes or until toasted and golden brown; remove from the oven and set aside. In a saucepan over low heat, cook butter and sugar for 5 minutes. Add water and corn syrup.
