Almond Brittle

Ingredients

  • 50g unblanched almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 165g castor sugar
  • 50ml water

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180ºC on fan forced function.
  • Spread the almonds in a single layer on a baking tray lined with baking paper, and roast until golden (4 - 5 minutes).
  • Combine sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook, occasionally brushing down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush, until the mixture starts to caramel (4 - 5 min), then pour over the roasted almonds, ensuring all the nuts are covered.
  • Cool completely and then break into shards.
