Warning: Keep away if on a diet! This is an amazingly rich almond choclate treat that includes over half a kilogram of chocolate and is held together with a brown sugar caramel.


Serves: 56 

  • 650g milk chocolate chips, divided
  • 500g butter
  • 3 cups (500g) brown sugar
  • 1 cup blanched slivered almonds, divided

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat oven to 100 degrees C. Grease a 35x45cm baking tray.
  2. Sprinkle half the chocolate chips on prepared tray. Place in warm oven until chips melt; about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread melted chocolate over bottom of tray; set aside.
  3. In a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat combine butter and brown sugar. Stirring constantly heat until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Immediately remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup slivered almonds and pour onto the tray on top of the melted chocolate; spread mixture evenly.
  4. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the almond layer. The heat from the almond layer will melt the chocolate chips; spread melted chocolate evenly. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup almonds over chocolate.
  5. Cut into squares or allow to harden in a solid sheet and break it apart like brittle. Cool completely before removing from tray.
