Almond Brittle

This is the recipe I used to help earn my Girl Scout Cooking Badge. Nut brittles don’t need to be purchased from a store, you can make them at home, best of all you can choose what nuts you use, be sure to use raw nuts. If you use nuts that are roasted they will burn during the cooking process.

    You have the best selection I have seen so far. I do wish though someone had included the sees recipe for 5lb. and using eagle brand milk and the marshmallow in a jar…I use to have this one but lost it when my home burned down. (NOT FROM COOKING!) LOL
