Recipe Ingredients for Almond Brittle

2 tablespoons almond oil
4 cups almonds, blanched and sliced
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup water

Recipe Directions for Almond Brittle

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush one baking sheet with almond oil; set aside. Place the almonds on another baking sheet, and toast them until light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

  2. In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine sugar and 1/2 cup water, and cook over medium-high heat until it registers 338 degrees on a candy thermometer, 15 to 20 minutes. Do not stir, but brush the sugar crystals from the sides of the pot with a wet pastry brush as they form. Once the sugar begins to brown, watch carefully and remove from heat as soon as it reaches the desired caramel color.

  3. Once the sugar has been removed from the heat, immediately add the almonds, and stir quickly to thoroughly combine. Turn out onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading quickly to an even thickness. Allow the brittle to cool completely, then break into pieces.
