It's almost exactly like the above recipe! We do triple the amount at a time; 3 cups sugar, 1 1/2 lb butter and a little corn syrup.

Make sure you roast the almonds first.

We put a layer of toasted almonds on a half sheet pan then some chocolate. Then when your sugar/butter mixture hits "hard crack" (about 300 degrees) pour it on and then put more chocolate and then more nuts. Press on nuts to finish.
