Almond Roca Bars Cookie Recipe

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! So much for baking without sampling! I just made these bars for church and they are Hoops & YoYo delicious!!

1 cup brown sugar – I do love a leveled measuring cup!

1 cup butter – softened

1 egg yolk – I’m pretty proud of this picture

2 cups flour- Nothing better than Christmas music while you bake using a red Kitchen-Aide!

1/2 t. salt

Can you tell I have been traumatized by stubborn baked goods that won’t come out of the pan one too many times? Baking spray is my new best friend even when recipes don’t call for it!

Press mixture into 11 x 15-inch cookie sheet – Peanut butter jelly spread out, peanut butter jelly spreeeeaaad out… funny and a little embarrassing, the things that go through your head while bakin’.

20 oz. semi-sweet chocolate – Semi-sweet chocolate always makes me 100% happy!

1/2 cup sliced or slivered almonds – or if you find that you have a little of each, you mix them together like I did. 🙂

Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Bake until light golden Be sure not to over bake – Wow, not sure what angle I was at when I took this pic!

Melt chocolate & gently spread over baked dough.

Sprinkle with almonds. Cut into bars while still warm. – Go nuts! Seriously worthy calories right here!

Stunning, really, don’t you think? Happy baking!
