The Food52 blog put together a tutorial for making a traditional Italian snack. Throughout Italy, almond brittle is a staple at holiday festivals and street fairs. This recipe recreates the Sicilian specialty by using only two basic ingredients.

To make the ultra-sweet almond brittle, all you need is sugar and some almonds. The sugar is easily transformed into a sticky caramel that helps to hold the almonds in place. Although the recipe is extremely simple, the sweet Italian snack delivers a complex mix of flavors. The almonds provide a rich and nutty taste, while the caramel base provides a flavor that is similar to that of a crème brûlée.

The recipe provides the perfect way to experience a taste of Italy without leaving the comfort of your home.
