Treats Week – Day 3 Treats – Sugared Almonds
Hello! Today is day three of homemade yummy treats that you can make for Christmas gifts. Today I have sweet Sugared Almonds.
These almonds are delicious, lightly sweet so they make a great snack!
2 cups whole almonds
1 egg white
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
Crack your egg and put the white into a bowl.
Whip that egg, bad bad egg white. Just til it’ frothy.
Mix in your other ingredients except for the nuts.
now add in your almonds and stir well to coat.
spread the almonds out on a sheet pan lined with parchment. I have an affinity for Reynolds Parchment foil. it wraps the pan well.
Place in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes. Stir, cook for another 10 minutes and stir. Keep an eye on the nuts at this point, they will dry out and look like this >>>>
You aren’t cooking them, but drying the coating onto the almond.
