The wife wanted the Rocha recipe, here it is.......
Almond or cashew (or?) Rocha
1 1/2 cups real butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
12 oz bag chocolate chips
Melt butter and sugar till dissolved. Add corn syrup, cook to 290 degrees (candy thermometer is important) stirring constantly. add 1 cup of the nuts. Spread on cookie sheet(fast) (spreads on cookie sheet easier with a wooden spoon) Sprinkle 12oz bag of choc. chips on top, wait a few minutes they will melt and spread it over the top, garnish with leftover nuts.
