Almond Rocha is a very addictive and delectable, crunchy, sugary treat coated with either white or dark chocolate (maybe both!) and Sprinkled with chopped almonds. This treat is hard to get right, so don't be discouraged if it doesn't taste good the first time you make it. Now it is time for you to gather the ingredients and make your own heart stopping treat!...... And give it to all of your friends as a present!
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
Gather these 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.
Step 2: Melt the Butter
Put all four sticks (1 pound) of butter into the pot. Turn the stove on medium heat and melt the butter, stirring often.
Step 3: Add the Sugar
Once all the butter has been melted, add 2 1/2 cups of white sugar. You should continue cooking on medium heat, still stirring often, until Rocha is foamy.
Step 4: Add Almonds
Now it is time to add 1 cup of blanched, slivered almonds to the Rocha, if you aren't allergic. Continue cooking on medium heat, stirring often, until it is caramel in color.
