Almond Roca

This recipe is from our friend Megan. Its actually surprisingly easy and great to give in jars to neighbors at Christmas time.

1 c almonds, finely chopped
4- 8 oz milk chocolate bars, grated or slivered
2 sticks butter
3 Tbsp water
1 c sugar

Put half of the chopped nuts on bottom of 9 x 13 pan. Layer half of the grated chocolate over nuts. Cook water, sugar, and butter over high heat until brown, like the color of a brown sack and it should just start to steam. Remove from heat. Pour syrup over chocolate and then top with remaining chocolate and then nuts and press nuts down softly. Refrigerate until cool and hard. Cover with saran wrap and push down on it to break it into pieces.
