- Pour all the ingredients in a tall pot and put on the stove at medium flame.
- Continuously and slowly turn all the ingredients with a wooden spoon.
- The sugar will melt... you are not done. Continue to turn.
- The sugar will then crystallize again... and you still are not done. Continue to turn.
- The sugar will melt one more time and once it is completely melted and it is of amber color, remove the pot from the flame and pour the content on a sheet of aluminum foil. The entire cooking process is about 20 minutes.
- With a spatula quickly flatten the hot almonds to form a sheet about 3/4" thick.
- Let it cool for about 5 minutes and with a large knife cut the entire sheet in squares of about 2" on each side.
- Remove the aluminum foil from all the pieces and let them completely cool off.
