1 cup roasted almonds -- unblanched, chopped
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation / Directions:

Sprinkle half the almonds on a greased 9 X 13-inch pan. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan. Add the sugars and water and mix well. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook to 300 degrees on candy thermometer or hard-crack stage. Remove from heat and stir in soda quickly. Pour carefully over almonds in pan and let cool for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate bits over toffee and spread out evenly. Heat of candy will melt chocolate. Sprinkle remaining almonds over chocolate and press in lightly. Cool, then break into pieces.
