Brittle is so easy to make and everyone loves it. You can make it a week ahead and store in an airtight container so it doesn't get in the way of all your other party plans. It is a great alternative to cakes, pies etc.
2-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
2 tbl unsalted butter
1 cup whole almonds toasted, cooled and roughly chopped
oil for greasing baking sheet
Grease a baking sheet.
In a saucepan, add sugar making sure it doesn't stick to the sides of the pan. Add water and stir making sure the sugar is all incorporated in the water. Then turn heat on to high and boil until it turns a light brown about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted. Stir in the nuts and pour mixture evenly on baking sheet. Let cool.
Break the brittle into single serving pieces and place on a serving will be gone in minutes!!!
