  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 2/3 cup whole almonds


  • Keep a silicon sheet ready or butter a cookie sheet.
  • Heat sugar and water on a saucepan on meduim-high flame, stirring constantly till the sugar melts and becomes an amber colored liquid.
  • Immediately add in the almonds and coat well in the melted sugar. Cook for a few minutes.
  • Take off from the flame and spread onto the sheet using a spatula as much as you can, it may be tricky but not difficult.
  • Allow to cool for around 30 minutes. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.


I used whole almonds. If you are in a mood, you can chop up the almonds coarsely and add into the melted sugar.
