Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

A few years ago, my friend brought some amazing cinnamon roasted almonds to our Christmas party (see my post for our Easy, Fun, and Cheap Christmas Party).  At first, I didn’t try them because I wasn’t all that interested.  But when I did…WOW!  I couldn’t get enough.  Now I know that a handful of almonds has a lot of nutritional value, but they also pack a lot of calories.  So usually a handful is enough. 

Be warned that a handful is all that will remain once you try these little beauties.  Incredible.  Once you start, I’m sure you won’t be able to stop.

CINNAMON ROASTED ALMONDS

  • ½ cup white sugar (or brown sugar)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tsp cold water, divided
  • 4 cups whole almonds

Preheat oven to 250°F.  Lightly grease a jellyroll pan.  Combine sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl.  Add water and stir until combined.  Pour over nuts and stir until coated.  Spread evenly on the prepared pan.  Bake for 1 hr, stirring occasionally, until golden.  Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.

**Note: Nuts will not be crunchy straight out of the oven.  Let them cool completely and they will be perfect!  Add more or less spices to your liking.
