  • 1 pound butter

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 6 Tablespoons water

  • 2 Tablespoons white corn syrup

  • Pinch salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2 packages (4 ounces each) German's sweet chocolate

  • 1 cup almonds, coarsely ground


Combine butter, sugar, water, corn syrup, salt and vanilla in large heavy pot.  Cook, stirring constantly, until candy thermometer registers 290 degrees.  Pour onto 2 large buttered baking sheets with 1/2 inch sides.  Let cool.  Melt chocolate over hot, not boiling, water and spread over cool, hardened candy.  Sprinkle immediately with ground almonds.  (Sometimes, to harden chocolate, candy must be placed in refrigerator for a little while.)  When topping has hardened, break candy into pieces.
