Almond Brittle (Pastelli Amygdalou)

If your looking to make a change in the dessert/snack area here is a nice change from the regular desserts which we love to eat with chocolate or vanilla filling.Β  I made this Almond Brittle earlier today and enjoyed a piece or two with a nice cup ofΒ  late afternoon tea.Β  πŸ™‚

Ingredients:



100 grams Almonds

225 grams of Light Brown Sugar

Preparation:

P1000915

On a sheet of baking paper add the almonds and bake for 1/2 hour at 180 degrees and until brown.Β  Once they have baked set them aside to cool.

P1000922

CrushΒ  almonds into smaller pieces.

P1000919

Add the sugar in a frying pan.Β  This amount of sugar makes it a bit sweet, you can use less sugar if you prefer.

P1000923

Let the sugar melt completely.

P1000924

Add in the crushed almonds and combine both ingredients.

P1000925

Place mix on a baking sheet and spread.Β  Let this cool off.Β  Once this is ready use a spacula to remove the brittle from the baking sheet.Β  Cut into pieces, it’s best to use your hands to cut into small pieces…:)

  • I had no idea it was this easy to make brittle. Could I use other nuts Sophie? I will certainly use almonds, they are delicious but wondering if others could be used also.
