Yield: about 3 pounds


  • 1/2 pound milk chocolate
  • 2 cups salted almonds
  • 2 cups butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white corn syrup
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Cut chocolate fine; melt in double boiler over lukewarm water (115 degrees F). Stir occasionally.
  2. Slice 1 cup of the almonds in halves lengthwise; coarsely chop remainder of nuts.
  3. Melt butter in a heavy frying pan; add sugar, the almond halves, corn syrup and water; stir until sugar is blended and no undissolved sugar adheres to sides of pan. Cook very slowly until small amount in cold water separates into hard but not brittle threads (290 degrees F). Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

  7. Sprinkle with remaining chopped almonds.
