Easy Almond Roca Recipe
1 sleeve graham crackers
12 oz. bag of chocolate chips
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped almonds
Directions: Line a 9×12 baking dish with foil and coat with non stick cooking spray. Line the bottom of the dish with a layer of graham crackers – you may need to break crackers in pieces to get them to fit). On the stove, bring butter and brown sugar to boil for about 3 minutes – do NOT allow mixture to burn. Pour mixture evenly over the crackers and then bake in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Spread chocolate chips around the top until they melt. Sprinkle nuts on top and press gently into the chocolate. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until hard. Break into pieces to serve. Store in an airtight container. Yields about 2 dozen pieces.
This recipe came from my sweet grandma who would make these and send them in the mail along with other cookies and treats to all her kids and grand kids. Be warned that these are super addicting so consider making a double batch!
