I have a couple Almond Brittle recipes but wanted to try something new. Made this as a trial and error and found it delicious. Not confusing at all. Just got to have that candy thermometer handy and all is well. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper... I plan to make it again for Christmas. ~V
