I always like to create new recipes. This one is an Almond Brittle instead of the usual Peanut Brittle. We really like almonds so this was prefect. Dipping in melted chocolate of your choice adds a special touch of flavor. It makes a wonderful gift for Christmas served up in a tin. Have fun and cook!
