Mary Lou's Almond Roca

3 c sugar
1 lb butter minus 2 tbsp
1 cup raw almonds cut in thirds
6 Hershey bars
finely chopped almonds

Cook butter and sugar over med high (#8 on my stove) until they are melted together, stirring constantly..  As the mixture cooks adjust the heat so that it boils constantly but doesn't burn.  Stir in the cup of almond thirds after a few minutes and keep stirring.  When the bottom of the pan begins to smoke cook for about 1 minute more.  Quickly pour onto a heavy cookie sheet (12"x18") and smooth out.  Cool and melt the Hershey bars and spread on both sides and sprinkle with finely chopped almonds!  Cool and Voila! Almond Roca!
