Only 3 ingredients.
Any nuts can be used but I made this batch with whole almonds with their skin on.

2 cups almonds
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 large baking tray greased and lined.

Place almonds and sugar into a large non stick frying pan on now medium to high heat stirring the entire time till sugar has completely melted.
Then turn the heat onto high and add the bicarbonate of soda stir in well for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and pour mixture into baking tray and with a spatula spread the mixture as thin as possible and leave to set and cool about 20 – 30 minutes.
Once set break into snack size pieces and place in an airtight container.
This brittle can also be crushed and used for a crunchy topping on ice cream it used to decorate a cake or used in muesli or just enjoyed as a snack.
