Marbled Almond Roca Recipe

My easy recipe is an old favorite that we keep in steady use from mid-November until the New Year. Homemade gifts are still a Christmas tradition at our house.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + cooling Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white baking chips

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle almonds on a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 300° for 15 minutes or until toasted and golden brown; remove from the oven and set aside.
  • 2. In a large saucepan over low heat, cook butter and sugar for 5 minutes. Add water and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage). Quickly pour over almonds. Sprinkle chips on top; let stand for 1-2 minutes or until melted. Spread and swirl chocolate over candy. Cool completely; break into pieces. Yield: 1-1/2 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
