Directions

In a saucepan, add the sugar and cook on high heat. Continue to stir until the sugar begins to sweat and liquify. Add a bit of water to help, if necessary. Continue to cook until the sugar turns into a deep rich brown color.

Add the almonds and mix well. Cook for a few minutes, making sure the almonds are fully coated. Remove the almonds from the heat and quickly pour and spread the hot almond-sugar mixture onto a buttered cookie sheet to the desired thickness.

Let cool for 30 minutes before breaking it into smaller pieces.

    Use toasted almonds. Once you have the mixture on the cookie sheet, flatten it using an orange or a lemon. The brittle will retain the citrus flavor. Fantastic!

    Delicious! I used slivered almonds (because it was what I had in the house and I spread it out on a bigger cookie sheet. They were yummy!!
