Earlier in the year I made one of my favorite Holiday treats – Almond Chocolate Toffee Brittle. In fact I’m bring a batch of them to a cookie swap I’m going to later in the day. They are super easy to make and taste like Almond Roca… and who doesn’t love Almond Roca?

ANY kind of brittle is a winner in my book – especially one covered in chocolate!
A special fondness for Alice’s baking skills from a wedding cake that was superb and still talked about by all who attended 4 years ago.

I love(!) Almond Roca…yummy recipe (yummy pictures). You get my vote, although I’m not sure if I have done things in an official way (where’s the vote button?).

These look great! I’m a huge fan of Almond Roca so I just know I would love these….yum! Good luck on the contest…I’m off to vote for you 🙂
I’m obsessed with those crackers used to make this brittle. I can’t imagine how much more obsessed I would be of these. My family loves almond roca. I might make these to surprise them.
I like brittle. I usually eat the plain traditional kind. I love the added chocolate and almond. This is a yummy dessert or snack.
