Homade candy like Almond RochaLike Almond Rocha

This candy is a family recipe that my mom makes every year at Christmas. With six ingredients, she cooks up the most delicious candy that tastes like Almond Rocha.

The recipe requires that you see (in the video) the golden color of the candy as it cooks to know when it is done.

Recipe

Ingredients
2 cubes of butter
1 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 to 1 1/4 cups finely chopped walnuts
1 swirl of light Karo syrup
Up to 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

In a large pan, add the butter, sugar, almonds and Karo syrup. Cook over medium  high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and browns into toffee. (See the video for the exact color.) Pour the molten hot toffee mixture onto a large rimmed cookie sheet and spread evenly with a spatula. Pour the desired amount of chocolate chips onto the hot toffee, wait a few minutes and spread evenly. Sprinkle the desired amount of chopped walnuts over the chocolate, shake the pan, and sprinkle more over less nutty spots.

Let the candy cool at room temperature for at least 3 hours, or until it is not sticky to the touch.  If you are in a hurry, place the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. then break the hardened candy with the tip of a knife or just use your hands. It is then ready to eat and can be stored without refrigeration.

You can also break it up into tiny pieces and top a bowl of vanilla ice-cream with it. Wrap some candy in a holiday container and then give it as a gift to friends or the host at a holiday party. Everyone will love it!

On a Diet? Avoid These!

No 100 Calorie Snacks Packs: These pre-portioned packs may be dangerous to healthy eating people. Researchers from the Netherlands discovered that giving TV-distracted students either two big bags of chips or several smaller ones, caused those with the portion-controlled bags to eat double the chips. It turns out that past research illustrated that people eat less food when they can see what they’ve already consumed. So stick with the real thing, also known as Round food.

No Reduced fat, Fat-free and Sugar-free Snacks: These are not always low calorie treats. When a snack touts being a reduced fat treat, it may only be reduced by a few calories. Plus, it turns out that dieters often think they can have twice as many of something that is reduced. This is one reason to stick with naturally Round foods. There will be no denial; an apple is always an apple.

No Drinking Calories: Sweet drinks like lattés, sugary tea, and adult beverages will add to your caloric intake. Just because they are liquid and no chewing is involved, don’t be fooled into thinking they are void of calories. The Round way to drink healthfully is to drink a lot of water.

No Mondo Snacks: Although you want to eat 2 to 3 small snacks every day, you don’t want to eat too big of snacks. This also means eating small meals to balance your snacks. A meal and a snack should be 2 different sizes! A meal should be about 3 times that of a snack. Spread  these out so that they are 2 hours apart, and as a Round rule, avoid energy bars and other candy-like snacks.

No Fatty Proteins: Fatty meats and fish are not as healthy as their leaner relatives. A Round way to eat is to also eat less meat, more tofu from the Round soy bean, eggs (more whites than yolks), beans and fish. A good Round way to eat proteins is to eat a variety, smaller portions, and stick with the leanest version possible to avoid twice the calories.

No Fat-reduced Salad Dressing: Forget about fat-free and reduced fat salad dressing! The fat they omitted just gets replaced with sugar. It is sugar, fat and salt that people get addicted to, so don’t fall prey to manufacturer’s seductive ways. Try my salad dressing on RoundTV. It is delicious, easy to make, everybody loves it and it has a balanced mix of healthy fat, citrus and flavor!

No Baked Chips: Duh! These are lower on the fat scale, but there is little nutrition in them. They’re lower in fat. Instead, try popcorn from the Round Corn kernel. Add a little salt and crunch away!  The healthiest is oil-free microwave popcorn, airpopped , popped in olive or canola oil. Plus, this Round food is full of fiber!

World’s Biggest Bean Bowl Promises Gassy Competition

Hurricane beans

If you are anywhere near Pinson, Alabama, this Saturday, you may want to wear a wind breaker. These Round morsels of wind-producing protein will be heating up a record-breaking storm in this humongous, newly built bean pot.

The powers that be at the Alabama Butterbean Festival plan to make a 2,000-pound bowl of beans, which will break the standing world record of 832.14 gallons. The Butterbean Festival previously set the Big Bean Bowl record back in 2002 and now wants a reason to toot its own musical fruit again.

The bean preparers will fill this giant pot with beans to attempt to break the record for “World’s Largest Bowl of Beans.” This pot is set to hold 2,000 pounds of beans on newly built humongous burners using a matching humongous recipe.

The new recipe includes 800 gallons of water, 400 pounds of ham, 50 pounds of butter, 50 pounds of flour, 10 pounds of salt, 10 pounds of pepper and 10 pounds of these bean preparers “secret ingredients.”

Let the biggest bowl of beans win and the hurricane-force, methane-filled wind fly.
