I made this recipe for a women’s meeting I go to, only brought half of the recipe with me because I was sure each would take only one bite to be polite. Well these women emptied the container and all asked for a copy of the recipe.

  • 3 cups raw almonds
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 6 oz chocolate chips

Cook first 3 ingredients over medium heat in large heavy pot, stirring constantly with metal spoon until candy stage (first it is separated, then thick and light, then thin and caramel colored). This takes 15-20 minutes. Spread on ungreased cookie sheet as thin as possible.

Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and when melted, spread evenly. Refrigerate until firm, then break apart.
