Chocolate Almond Brickle

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 45 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6



  • 2 1/2 cups toasted and coarsely chopped, divided almonds
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups (from 11.55-ounce package) milk chocolate morsels


Sprinkle 1 1/4 cup nuts over the bottom of a well-greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

Melt the butter in a medium, heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 280 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 7 minutes.

Pour the hot mixture over the nuts; let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with morsels. Let stand until morsels melt and become shiny and soft, about 5 minutes. Spread evenly.

* Refrigerate for about 20 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces.
