Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond slices
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar or white granulated sugar
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Add almonds, sugar, and cinnamon to a medium pan.
  2. Toast over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. You can tell that the almonds are done when you start to smell a toasted nut flavor and the sugar melts completely, coating the nuts.
  4. Spread nuts out on waxed paper to cool.

Recipe Notes

Dress It Up:
For a more chewy coating, melt a small slice of butter in pan before adding the rest of the ingredients.
For a little more flavor, throw a splash of vanilla into pan with other ingredients.
Notes:
Brown sugar also results in a chewier almond with a little richer flavor. However, equally good is granulated sugar which gives a fine, crunchy coating.
