Preheat oven to 100 C / Gas 1/4. Grease a 35x45cm or similar sized baking tray.
Sprinkle half of the chocolate chips on prepared tin. Place in warm oven until chocolate melts, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread melted chocolate evenly over the bottom; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter and dark brown soft sugar. Stirring constantly, heat to 149 to 154 degrees C or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Immediately remove from heat. Stir in 75g almonds and pour onto prepared tin; spread mixture evenly.
Sprinkle over remaining chocolate chips. The heat from the almond layer will melt the chocolate chips; spread melted chocolate evenly. Scatter with remaining almonds.
Cut into squares or allow to harden in a solid sheet and break it apart like brittle. Cool completely before removing from tin.
I am planning to try this recipe. Sounds like what i have been looking for; But, I wish someone would translate the UK measurements into American pounds, ounces, degrees, etc.
We don't measure butter or sugar by the ounce, for instance. - 23 Dec 2011
