- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup cold water
- 2 cups sliced almonds, toasted
In a heavy saucepan gently combine sugar and water, avoiding getting sugar up the walls of the pan. Boil, brushing down sides of the pan if necessary until it becomes a light colored caramel. Dip bottom of saucepan into ice water to stop the cooking. Let cool slightly until caramel falls off a spoon in a slow stream. Spread sliced almonds on a sheet pan. Drizzle caramel over sliced almonds in a lacy fashion to form a fat triangle shape. Let cool. Lift off sheet pan and store in an airtight container.
