Just like you find at the mall. A dear friend made these for me at Christmas last year.
With a cinnamon sugar goodness, they are completely i-r-r-e-s-i-s-t-i-b-l-e.
Cinnamon Sugared Almonds
Yield: 3 cups
- 3 cups whole almonds, raw
- 1 cup sugar Coupons
- 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.
Keep stirring until the sugar crystallizes (this takes about 8-10 minutes) and it looks sandy. Don’t stop stirring!
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.
