Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • 1

    cup crunchy almond butter

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons water, divided

  • 3/4

    cup sugar

  • 3/4

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1

    teaspoon almond extract

  • 1

    cup 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips

  • 1/3

    cup chopped almonds, toasted

  • 3/4

    cup flaked coconut

Directions

Grease a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter. Place almond butter in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave, covered, at 50% power for 30-60 seconds or until softened, stirring once. In a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in 1 teaspoon water. Set aside almond butter and baking soda mixture. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Using a pastry brush dipped in water, wash down the sides of the pan to eliminate sugar crystals. Cook until a candy thermometer reads 240° (soft-ball stage), stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add remaining butter; cook until candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage), stirring frequently, about 5 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; stir in the softened almond butter, almond extract and dissolved baking soda. (Candy will foam.) Immediately pour into prepared pan. Spread to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; let stand until chocolate begins to melt. Spread evenly; sprinkle with almonds and coconut, pressing slightly to adhere. Cool slightly. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Break candy into pieces. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container. Yield: about 1 3/4 pounds.
