  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups almonds
  • 1 lemon, halved


  1. In a saucepan over high heat, cook the sugar. Stir until the sugar begins to liquefy and turns golden in color. 
  2. Continue to cook until the sugar turns golden brown and becomes a beautiful sticky liquid, four to five minutes. 
  3. Remove from heat, add the almonds, and mix well to fully coat. 
  4. Quickly pour and spread the hot almond sugar mixture onto a sheet of parchment paper. 
  5. Place another sheet of parchment face down on top of the almond mixture. 
  6. Using a rolling pin on top of the parchment, roll mixture flat, about a centimeter thick, or you can spread it out, without parchment on top, using an oiled metal spatula. Once flat, peel off the parchment paper and rub half a lemon over the nut brittle to give it a citrus flavor and a shine. 
  7. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then break into small pieces or cut into strips.
