Almond croquant is so delicious, and perfect to use in ice cream cakes and homemade confectionery.

 

Homemade almond croquant

  • 5  1/4 oz. (150 g) blanched almonds
  • 1  1/4 cup (275 g) regular sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Finely chop the almonds with a knife or in a food processor. You should end up with a mixture of very finely chopped and some slightly larger pieces.
