(Makes About 1 1/2 Pounds)

1 c. chopped roasted unblanched almonds
1 c. butter or margarine
1 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 tbs. water
1/2 tsp. soda
3-oz. semi-sweet chocolate bits or bar

Sprinkle half of the almonds on a buttered 9×13-inch pan. Melt butter or margarine in a heavy pan; add sugars and water; mix well. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue cooking to 300 degrees or hard-crack stage. Remove from heat; stir in soda (work fast!). Pour carefully over almonds in pan; let cool about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle chocolate bits or shaved bar chocolate over toffee; spread out evenly (heat of candy will melt chocolate). Sprinkle remaining nuts over chocolate and press in lightly. Cool. Break into pieces.
