Personal Notes:
This recipe came from one of Rockys co-workers in 1990 and I have made it many times over the years. Its Rocky's all time favorite Almond Roca.
I recently ( Sept. 2008) ran into this same co-worker (Janet) and told her how her recipe has been included in so many of our Christmas's.. See how far a good recipe can go!!
