Stovetop, Parchment paper, Pot (small)
Add the water & sugar to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Then allow it to bubble & thicken for 3-5 min.
Add the almonds & a pinch of salt. Stir constantly until the liquid hardens around the almonds.
Quickly spread the almonds in a single layer onto a sheet of parchment paper. (Feel free to garnish with your favorite ground spices or minced herbs!) Let cool for an hour.
Separate the individual almonds, roughly chop them, or eat them in clusters like brittle. Enjoy!
