How to make wonderful candied almonds!

What you need:

2 cups almonds

1 cup brown sugar (white sugar works as well)

1/2 cup water

1 tea spoon cinnamon

Sauce pan

Baking sheet lined with parchment paper


Put sugar, water and cinnamon into a sauce pan. Stir together and turn the heat on the stove to medium heat. Once the ingredients begin to boil add the 2 cups of almonds. Using a wooden spatula stir the almonds and sugar for about 8 - 10 minutes.

For the majority of the stirring process the mixture will have a liquid texture. 8 minutes into the stirring process the mixture will take on a sticky texture. Shortly after this, all liquid will dissolve and a powder will form on the almonds. Once this happens remove immediately from the pan. Place on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Separate the almonds from one another and let them cool for at least 15 minutes!

Simple breakdown:

1. Sugar, water and cinnamon into sauce pan.

2. Add the almonds once mixture boils

3. Stir for 8 - 10 minutes.

4. Remove from pan onto the baking sheet once mixture becomes powdery.

5. Cool for 15 minutes before eating.
