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.  I made this Almond Brittle earlier today and enjoyed a piece or two with a nice cup of  late afternoon tea.  🙂



  • 100 grams Almonds
  • 225 grams of Light Brown Sugar


  • On a sheet of baking paper add the almonds and bake for 1/2 hour at 180 degrees and until brown. Once they have baked set them aside to cool.
  • Crush almonds into smaller pieces.
  • Add the sugar in a frying pan. This amount of sugar makes it a bit sweet, you can use less sugar if you prefer.
  • Let the sugar melt completely.
  • Add in the crushed almonds and combine both ingredients.
  • Place mix on a baking sheet and spread. Let this cool off. Once this is ready use a spacula to remove the brittle from the baking sheet. Cut into pieces, it’s best to use your hands to cut into small pieces…:)

  4. 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.
  5. Great idea for February! Love to make candy, and this looks so yummy :)
  6. Love these delicious treats ! We do make the same with crushed peanuts !!
  7. This takes me back to my childhood! Was honey used traditionally?
