Almond Butter Crunch Candy

This is a wonderful holiday candy recipe that goes back a really long time in my family.  It’s perfect for gift giving and is very quick and simple to make.  I hope you’ll give it a try and let me know what you think.  Don’t look now but I think these two are just dying for a taste of Almond Butter Crunch Candy.

Almond Brittle Candy Recipe


1 1/2 cups blanched, slivered almonds
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
Red and green sugar (optional)

-In a large heavy saucepan pan, over medium heat, melt the butter.
-Add the sugar, increase the heat to medium high, and stir to completely melt the sugar.
-Add the corn syrup and almonds.
-Continue to cook, stirring often, until the mixture beings to turn a nice golden brown color (approximately 7-10 minutes) being careful not to burn it.  The mixture will also thicken as it browns.
-Meanwhile, prepare 2 – 9 inch round cake pans by completely covering them with aluminum foil. There is no need to butter them as there is a lot of butter in your candy mixture.
-When your candy is nicely browned, turn it out into the two prepared pans. Working quickly but carefully, spread the mixture evenly into each pan.
-This is the point I like to sprinkle the red and green sugar on top but that part is completely optional.
-Allow your candy to cool thoroughly and then you can remove it from the pan by just lifting out the foil.
-Break it into bite size pieces and your ready to package it as a gift or serve it anyway you choose.
