These spiced almond brittle biscuits are so delicious, and they truly deliver in the spice department. A crunchy melt in your mouth texture, perfect with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon.
Spiced baked goodies are my favourite type of baked treats. I love ginger biscuits, cinnamon rolls and sweet potato pie. As soon as I saw this flavour option from Virtue Ice Cream, I instantly started thinking about biscuits, and what goes well with crunchy, buttery and sweet biscuits? Spice!
What I love so much about this almond brittle ice cream is that it is a textured ice cream. It literally has pieces of almond brittle swirled into the ice cream. Out of the four ice cream flavours, this one is the sweetest. This is not a bad thing, after all ice cream is meant to be sweet. If you have a sweet tooth you will LOVE this flavour.
Taking inspiration from the almond brittle and the texture of the ice cream, I was able to create vegan, low calorie biscuits, that honestly taste better than store bought.
Besides serving these golden beauties with a hot beverage, you could always crumble them over a scoop or two of the Virtue almond brittle ice cream as a quick and easy dessert. However you decide to enjoy them, I am certain you will enjoy them!
