2/3 cup almond (sliced almonds about 300 g)
1/3 cup sugar (about 100 g)
lemon juice (a few drops)
1/3 cup honey (about 100 g)


1 Baking Tray
Baking papers
1 Casserole



Pour the sliced ​​almonds into a baking tray covered with parchment paper and toast them in a preheated oven at 356 degrees, it only takes a few seconds (be careful that they do not burn).

Line an 8 “x 8” baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with a pastry brush.


Place sugar, honey, and lemon juice drops in a medium saucepan and heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.

Continue cooking and stir until the mixture is golden. For those with a cooking thermometer, the caramel should reach 266 F.


Add the toasted almonds, still hot, to the caramel, remove the pan from the heat and stir with a spoon.

Pour the mixture into the greased pan, distributing and trying to level it. Beware that it is hot!


Allow to cool to room temperature until it is firm.

Turn the pan upside down, remove the aluminum foil and break it into bites.


To optimally preserve the almond crunch, cover it with cling film or better still with baking paper and place it in an airtight box. Keep it in a cool and dry place because it fears both heat and humidity.


I used sliced ​​almonds because I prefer thinner crunchy but nothing prevents you from using whole almonds already peeled or even with the peel (in this case you have to remove them by blanching them).

You can obviously prepare the brittle with any other type of dried fruit such as peanuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, or mixed dried fruit. Lemon juice is important because it helps not to crystallize the sugar.
