Christmas is coming very soon and I cannot miss Almond Brittle during this magic week.
It arrives from the ancient Spain and it is very very simple to prepare, fast and few ingredient.
In Italy we use to eat Almond Brittle (or in italian Torrone) during the Christmas eve and Christmas day, often after dinner or Lunch.
And I add that I am from the most important Almond production area in Italy and often we use the almonds when we cook.
So, go and cook it!
Here are the ingredients and the steps. You can find the video recipe in my Instagram page (my profile - highlights) or in my YouTube channel.
500gr / 3.5 cups almonds
500gr / 2.5 cups sugar
2 tbsp honey
