Almond Butter Crunch
1 2/3 cup of sugar
2 sticks of butter
3 tbls of water
1 tbls of light corn syrup
1 cup of silvered toasted almonds
1 8oz of milk chocolate (I used 1 1/2 bags of chocolate instead)
1 bag of sliced toasted almonds
Combine all the toffee ingredients, stirring occasionally until mixture reaches 300 degrees (you will need a candy thermometer for this).
Remove from heat and quickly stir in one cup of silvered toasted almonds (as I am stirring the toffee mixture, I actually toast the almonds in the oven, I couldn't find any already toasted).
Spread mixture thinly on a cookie sheet. allow to cool, then melt the milk/dark chocolate and spread onto the cooled toffee. (I recommend using a long spatula when spreading. I found it easier to spread than using your normal type of spatula).
Sprinkle on sliced toasted almonds (again, I toasted these in the oven while melting the milk/dark chocolate). Allow it to cool/harden.
Flip it, then spread last layer of chocolate and sprinkle w/ sliced toasted almonds.
Once it is all cool, break it up into mini chocolate pieces. I actually cut mine up with a sharp knife. these make for great party treats or to give away. Happy Baking :)
