Low Carb Cinnamon Sugar Almond Brittle-Great Neighbor Gift for Christmas
It’s almost Christmas! Pretty soon you will have your best neighbors knocking on your door delivering sweet treats. But will you have anything to give in return? No worries, I’ve got you covered. My Low Carb Cinnamon Sugar Almond Brittle is so good it won’t matter if the recipient is low carb or not. They will love these.
Have you ever gone near a kiosk at the mall or carnival that is selling cinnamon sugar coated almonds? First, you can smell that cinnamon goodness from about a mile away. And it just lures you in close enough to see if anyone is giving free samples. Am I right?
You’ll get that same cinnamon goodness with this recipe. Trust me, when you start to make this, your home will smell amazing.
It’s really only takes a few ingredients too. Super easy and perfectly giftable. Or you can keep the whole batch for yourself!
Put some in a waxed paper or cellophane treat bag with a gift tag and your neighbors and friends will think you spent hours in the kitchen making this gourmet treat.
Oh my gosh, I can practically smell the cinnamon now!
Bonus: you can settle the great debate of sweet or salty with this treat. Before your brittle cools add some coarse Pink Himalayan Salt. Not only does it look gourmet, it makes your tastebuds feel happy!
How cute are these little gift tags? Here’s a tip. Head to the wedding or general baking section of your local craft store. They have the cutest gift tags and treat bags that are perfect for any occasion. And these paper bags were actually less expensive than the Christmas treat boxes.
Add some butchers twine and you’ve got such a pretty, gourmet gift to give this holiday season.
Low Carb Cinnamon Sugar Almond Brittle
Makes 12 servings
8 tbsp butter (1 stick)
2 cups Swerve, preferably Confectioners
1/4 cup Cinnamon (I like mine with lots of cinnamon so you can adjust this to your taste)
Pink Himalayan Salt (optional)
4 cups Almonds (you could use any type of nut for this recipe)
Melt stick of butter in a heavy saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Add Swerve and cinnamon and mix to combine. Add 4 cups of almonds and stir to combine with the butter, cinnamon and sugar. Continue to stir until all the almonds are coated and are just beginning to turn golden. About 8-10 min.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. When your almonds are done roasting spread them out on your parchment lined cookie sheet to cool. If you are using the Pink Himalayan Salt, sprinkle it on the almonds now before they cool so that it sticks. When your almond brittle cools, break it apart into pieces to package into individual bags to gift.
