CANDY


Almond Brittle

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups unblanched sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
Directions

Bring the water to a boil in a large, heavy saucepan over moderate heat. Stir in the sugar and corn syrup until dissolved.

Cook to the hard-ball stage and add the almonds and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, to the hard-crack stage.

Remove from the heat and stir in the butter, vanilla, and baking soda. Pour the mixture onto a well buttered slab or baking sheet and spread it out with a spatula, making it as thin as possible while it is still hot.

Cool to room temperature and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
