Need an easy homemade gift to take to your neighbors? Having a Christmas or holiday party and want a yummy snack to have around? I love these delicious cinnamon almonds and they are so simple to make. Plus you can substitute any kind of nut that you have on hand.
1 cup sugar
3 cups raw almonds (or any other nut)
1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup water
Directions: In a large skillet combine the sugar, cinnamon and water. Add the almonds and stir constantly with a spoon over medium heat, coating the almonds with the syrupy mixture. Keep stirring until the sugar crystallizes. Remove the pan from heat and scoop the almonds onto wax or parchment paper. Let the cinnamon almonds cool before serving. These can be made a few days ahead.
