Roasted almonds are a snack I could eat every day. Add cinnamon sugar by way of a honey butter coating and others can't stay away. These make great gifts since most people like them but not many know how to make them.
Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Almonds
2 c. whole almonds, skins on
¼ c. honey
2 T. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
1. Spread almonds in a single layer on a baking pan. Place in a cold oven and heat to 350°.
2. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until you can smell them. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt and set aside.
3. In a medium saucepan, heat butter & honey until boiling. Add almonds and simmer for 2-5 minutes.
4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a cool baking pan. Cool slightly before sprinkling with cinnamon sugar mixture. Stir and continue sprinkling with the cinnamon sugar mixture until completely coated. Stir occasionally until cooled.
