Elyse's Roca Brittle

Oh my goodness, this stuff is dangerous. Seriously dangerous. Beware! You will most likely eat the whole batch if you don't have an occasion your making them for or people you're bringing them to. I helped throw a shower for my sweet friend Julie and her new Baby Reese this week and one of her friends brought these and some other amazing baked treats to the party. Thanks for the fabulous recipe Elyse!
 Enjoying in moderation :)


-    jelly roll pan lined with foil (shiny side down)
-  Keebler Club crackers
-  2 1/2 sticks of butter
-  1 1/3 cups golden brown sugar
-  2 cups chocolate chips
-  chopped walnuts

Line the pan with crackers, salty side down.  You will need to break and piece together to cover the bottom of the pan. 

Melt the butter and brown sugar on the stovetop.  Cook until it begins to pull away from the sides of the pot and it is a creamy, bubbly consistency.

Pour over the crackers, spreading to the edges so they are completely covered.  Bake at 350 degrees for seven minutes.

Spread chocolate chips on top, again spreading so that when they melt, all areas are covered.  Sprinkle with chopped walnuts.

Set in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes until the bottom of the pan is cooled.  Break apart into serving pieces.

Okay, this looks too easy and yummy not to try!

Along with Grandma Katie's lemon poppy seed bread and other homemade goodies she'd send at Christmastime, Aunt Pat used to send my dad a fabulous Almond Roca every year. I remember helping him make a complicated homemade version because he just couldn't go a whole year again without it! (Sometimes it worked, sometimes...uh, not so much!)

Glad you enjoyed your roadie--Santa Fe is so refreshing! We'll be on another roadie soon too...

Oh wow - I was just looking for a good recipe for homemade Almond Rocco. My cousins had them as wedding treats last weekend and it was SOOO good! Thanks for the recipe.
