Almond Brittle
½ stick butter (4 tablespoons), room temperature
¾ cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

Place a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add butter (make sure it is at room temperature), sugar and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until the butter, sugar and salt are well incorporated, and then add almonds and sesame seeds. Turn heat up to medium-high.

This is the point where you have to pay close attention, and keep stirring constantly. When the almonds and sugar begin to brown, and turn to a light caramel color, and you see the melted butter separate from the rest of the mixture, turn off the heat. Very carefully, pour the mixture onto the foil lined baking sheet. Spread to a thin, even layer with the back of the wooden spoon. Let the almond brittle cool completely before you snap them into pieces.

Store in an airtight container. Or, put them in little bags or boxes, as shown in the picture, and share them with your friends. They make delectable little gifts for Christmas.

    • Hi Joy achacha,

      That is definitely true! Don’t know all the ingredients that went into his mix! But we used to enjoy every bite of the one piece we got!

      You always bring up grand memories of times gone by – I love it! Thank you for that and love you lots.


  1. Dear Maggie,

    I made your almond brittle Friday and it was delicious. I shared it with some friends and they loved it, also! The recipe is definitely a keeper! It is so easy and takes very few ingredients. I am going to make more today for Thanksgiving. I think it would be lovely for Christmas hostess gifts, too! Thanks for sharing!

    Some of the other recipes are a bit complicated for me as I don’t know where to buy some of the ingredients. I enjoy reading them though.
