Cinnamon Almond Brittle

Sweet and mouth watering, the almonds and sugar are enhanced by the rich cinnamon taste. The little bit of sticky fingers from eating this is well worth it.

Servings 12 pieces


  • 1 lb. whole almonds or almond pieces
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 2 inch cinnamon stick break into small pieces
  • chocolate sprinkles optional


  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees. Put almonds on a baking sheet pan and just warm in the oven about 5 minutes, if using whole almonds. Less time for almond pieces. Do nut burn the nuts. Set aside. Grease another baking sheet pan and set aside.
  2. In a heavy pot, add the sugar and water. Stir, using only a wooden spoon for this whole process. Set aside. When sugar is diluted and bubbly, add the almonds and keep stirring. Sugar will get hard around the almonds, but as you keep stirring it will melt again. It will turn brown. Add the cinnamon and stir again.
  3. Pour the mixture onto the greased baking sheet pan. At this point you can add the sprinkles or any candy of your choice. Let cool before breaking this into pieces and serve.
