Cinnamon Sugar Almonds

It's hard to improve on the taste of almonds, but this recipe does just that! And it's easy to make, too! I made a batch for our Super Bowl party and they were a hit. They're also perfect to make around the Christmas holidays as a snack or to package up and give away. Throw them on a salad to add a yummy crunch!

Here's what you'll need:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
4 cups whole almonds
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 teas salt

Combine the sugar and water in a skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Add the almonds to the skillet and coat with the sugar mixture.

Keep stirring until most of the liquid has evaporated. This will take about 5 minutes or so. Add the cinnamon and salt and mix well. Continue to stir until the almonds start to look dry. Dump the almonds out onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

These little goodies are addictive! The sugar and cinnamon turn the almonds into a flavorful treat!
