Almond Roca (fast and wonderful)

Almond Roca
Place 40 saltine crackers on a cookie sheet that is covered with foil.
Turn edges of foil up.

1 cup real butter
1/2 cup sugar
Bring to a slow boil

Pour over crackers, Make sure all are covered.
Bake 9 or 10 minutes at 350*
Remove and cover with a 12 oz. package of semi-sweet
chocolate chips. Put back into oven until chips can be spread like frosting
with the back of a spoon. Be sure to cover all of the crackers.

Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of chopped Almonds
Enjoy!
Marge Helms

I have a very easy recipe that is just a bit different.

Almond Roca Bars
1/2 lb Butter
1/2 c Brown sugar
1/2 c Sugar
1 c Flour
2 ts Baking powder
1 Egg yolk
6 Good quality chocolate bars (semisweet)
1 1/2 c Chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 325F
1.Cream butter and sugars. Add egg yolk. Beat until creamy.
2.Mix baking powder with flour. Add to butter mixture; mix until well incorporated and creamy.
3.Spread evenly in 9x13 pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
4.Put bars of chocolate on top of baked crust; put back into the oven briefly so that chocolate melts and can be spread easily to cover the entire top.
5.Sprinkle with chopped almonds. Cool to room temp and cut into bars.

Dove, this recipe is as bizarre as the one where you bake an apple pie with Ritz crackers instead of apples.

The question is, does it really taste like Almond Roca? The "chemical" pie made with Ritz crackers actually fools people into thinking they're eating a real apple pie.

I may just try it for a Christmas party. I'll make it and if it tastes half way decent, I'll take it to the party just to get people's reactions.

OK. You convinced me. Will head to the market in a little while to get the crackers and chocolate chips.
