Note: Almond Rocha is essentially butter and sugar cooked in a pot, so too much isn't good, especially to those with heart problems.
For those allergic to almonds: Almonds are optional.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
-2 1/2 cups of white sugar.
-1 pound of salted, sweet cream butter.
-16 ounces of either white or dark chocolate, unless you want to do half and half, then 8 ounces of each.
-1 1/2 cups of blanched, slivered almonds, unless you're allergic. (1 cup will go into the Rocha, and 1/2 cup will be chopped and sprinkled on top.)
Gather these utensils:
-A large pot.
-A long wooden spoon.
-A 12"x18" jelly roll pan.
-A cup of cold water, but you won't need that till later.
