candied almonds

Candied Almonds

1 C. sugar
1 C. almonds
2 tsp. cinnamon
coarse sea salt

Place sugar, almonds and cinnamon in a pan over medium heat.

Using a metal spoon (not a wooden spoon, otherwise the caramel will stick!) stir constantly until sugar starts to melt.

Keep stirring...and stirring...and stirring...until the sugar has completely melted into a smooth, sticky caramel and nuts are coated.

Spread nuts over a non-stick surface (wax paper does not count as non-stick...learned that the hard way) and sprinkle with sea salt.

Let cool and then enjoy! (Not the other way around, trust me, you'll burn your mouth. Also learned that the hard way.) This also works great with pecans, which you can then toss into a salad or use as a topping for ice cream!
