As a gift to you for Christmas, I am sharing what I am calling the "Infamous Benson Family Sinful Almond Roca Recipe. Many of you have hopefully enjoyed this sinful delight, if not, I will be providing you with step-by-step instructions on how to make it yourself.
As you will see, this recipe has been passed down from generation to generation --- the way you will see this is by the obviously very used, stained, antique paper, crumbled recipe that you will see.
Honestly, this is the easiest recipe and does not require a candy thermometer. Imagine that!!
Let's get started!!
Step 1: Ingredients Needed
2 cubes of butter
1 Cup of Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of water
1 package of sliced Almonds (Tip - you can buy the almonds in the organic bulk area - much cheaper!)
6 ounces of Chocolate Chips - my family likes dark chocolate, but you can use milk chocolate.
Step 2: Preparing the Pan
You simply spread a few of your almonds on the pan; this recipe will just do about 3/4 of an 10 " by 18".
You can crumple up the almonds more than I did here, if you want.
Step 3: Combine Ingredients Over High Heat
YOU MUST STIR NOW UNTIL THE TIME YOU POUR THE MIXTURE ON YOUR PREPARED PAN.
Step 4: Boiling Stage
Step 5: Keep Stirring!
Step 6: 5 Minutes Should Be Up
BE CAREFUL ( If you are like me, I get burned every time I enter the kitchen to cook) Ha! No Joke!
Step 7: Spread the Chocolate Chips
NOW, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the HOT mixture. Let it set for about 30 seconds.
See the little brown mark on my finger, that is a burn from trying to make a toasted cheese sandwich using the toaster oven! See See I wasn't lying about the kitchen being a danger zone!!
Step 8: When It Looks Like This
Step 9: Sprinke the Almonds
Step 10: Refrigerate
Step 11: Cut UP - Breakup
Of course, I do this very carefully considering that I am kitchen challenged.
Step 12: Finished and Sinful!
