Cinnamon Sugared Almonds

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!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole almonds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions:

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.
