Honey Almond Brittle

Yield: 1 serving
Community Recipe from


  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 3 tablespoon(s) honey
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 2 ounce(s) slivered almonds toasted
  • 1 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) baking soda


  1. To make the brittle: Combine the granulated sugar, honey and water in a medium-sized saucepan.

  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.

  3. Boil, without stirring, until the mixture turns a deep amber color, about 10 minutes.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in the toasted almonds, butter and baking soda.

  5. Mix with a wooden spoon just until the butter melts and the foaming subsides.

  6. Pour the mixture into a nonstick or lightly greased baking sheet and set aside to cool.

  7. Once the brittle has hardened, break it up and crush to fine crumbs in a food processor.

  8. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

  9. Note: To toast nuts, arrange in a single layer on a baking pan.

  10. Bake in a 375F oven until golden brown, about 7 to 10 minutes.

  11. Allow nuts to cool before using.
