Cinnamon Sugared Almonds
Hi all! I was on the look for a quick little something to have sitting out for some friends to come over and came across these- they are deeeelicious! Let me know what you think!
- 3 cups whole almonds
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 cup water
In a large skillet or pot combine the sugar, cinnamon and water over medium-high heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the almonds and stir constantly with a spoon or spatula, coating the almonds with the syrupy mixture. It should look something like this:
Keep stirring until the sugar crystallizes (this takes about 8-10 minutes) and it looks sandy. Don’t stop stirring! It might feel like forever but keep going! Then it will look something like this:
Remove the pan from heat and scoop the almonds onto wax or parchment paper.
Let the cinnamon almonds cool for a few minutes before serving.
Don’t they look good?!?! They are really, really delicious too! Fun little snack treat. Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully you enjoy too!
