Brazil Nut & Almond Brittle

Ingredients (serves 8)
Vegetable oil, to grease
1 cup Brazil nuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup slivered almonds
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
2 oz butter
Preheat oven to 350 F. Brush a 7 x 11 inch (base measurement) slice pan with oil to lightly grease. Spread the Brazil nuts and almonds over separate baking trays. Bake in oven for 5 minutes or until toasted. Set aside to cool slightly.
Cook the sugar in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves and mixture is golden brown. Remove from heat. Add the Brazil nuts, almonds and butter and stir to coat. Pour into the prepared pan and set aside for 20 minutes to set. Break into large shards to serve.
