Nutritional Facts

Directions

  1. Butter two baking sheets and keep warm in a 200° oven. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and water. Cook and stir over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 240° (soft-ball stage). Stir in the butter, cinnamon, salt and almonds; cook and stir until mixture reaches 300°(hard-crack stage), brushing down sides of pan with water as needed.

Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2014

"The cinnamon is a great addition to this brittle. I found three cups of almonds was too much. There wasn't enough brittle to go around the nuts. Tried again with 2 cups of almonds and it was perfect. I made this for a bazaar for two years now and I've gotten great reviews."
