Almond Rocca

Almond Rocca is one of my very favourite sweets but the cost makes it a rare treat.  When I came across this recipe I was thrilled, now I can have almond rocca whenever get the craving (and I have the ingredients in the pantry).

1 cup almonds, finely chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup choc chips

Butter a 20cm square cake tin. Spread chopped nuts in pan. In a small saucepan bring sugar and butter to the boil, stirring constantly. Boil over medium heat, stirring constantly for 7 minutes. Watch closely and keep stirring so it doesn't stick or burn. Immediately spread mixture evenly over nuts in the cake tin. Sprinkle chocolate pieces over the hot mixture; place a baking sheet
over pan so contained heat will melt chocolate. Spread the melted chocolate over the toffee. While hot, cut into 3cm squares. Chill until firm.

Almond Rocca makes a really nice gift too. With Christmas just over a week away, quick, easy and inexpensive gifts with WOW are called for.  This almond rocca makes a lovely gift, whether for a hostess, as a thank you or for Christmas. Wrap the pieces in coloured foil, twist the ends and present in a jar or lidded box.  You can get coloured foil squares at homewares stores or anywhere you can buy chocolate making supplies.
