Moroccan Almond briwats are a traditional sweet treat that pairs perfectly with a glass of Moroccan mint tea during special events or a bowl of Harira during Ramadan.

With their delicate flavor and crunchy texture, it's not surprising that briwats have long been an integral part of the Moroccan culinary culture.

To make these delicious sweets, you only need 4 ingredients: Almond paste, pastilla sheets (or phyllo dough), butter, and honey. The result is a sweet confection with a tender almond center, wrapped in a layer of crunchy pastilla sheets. The briwats are then dipped in honey for an extra sweet touch.

There are three types of almond pastes used to make briwates. One type uses a mix of blanched and fried almonds, while the others use either fried or blanched almonds. In this video, the dada will show you how to make the mixed almond version. Follow the dada's instructions and perfect this classic Moroccan recipe.
