Santa's Favorite Recipes: Crunchy Almond-Caramel Brittle

Pine Bar

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar-molasses
1 tsp. vanilla 
2 cups chopped or slivered almonds


Christmas baskets

Place  1 cup of sugar in heavy pan; heat, stir constantly.

Add 1 cup of molasses and cook until sugar is dissolved, mixture bubbles.

Add 1 tsp. of vanilla, sugar starts to smell like caramel (about 5 minutes)

Add 2 cups of almond chips added to the hot mixture and stir for another minute (don't overcook, take instantly  off the heat when almonds smell finely roasted, or else it might start to smell burnt).

Spread mixture quickly on a well greased baking sheet and roll with a greased rolling pin until it is about 1/4 thick. Let cool, break into pieces.  If you want squares, cut while mixture is still warm and soft. 

Caution: Melted sugar is extremely hot! Don't lick or stick fingers in it while cooking or removing  it from pan. 

Wrapped in a nice box, these candies also make a beautiful and thoughtful gift!
