I have been making these to put into my chrissy goodie bags for a good 5 years now. Its kinda an expected gift along with the family calendar and my Trifle for christmas dessert. Some traditions should never be broken.
The Sugared almonds are super delicious and take under 20mins to make. Even my daughter who never eats almonds will happily munch away a cup full at a time.
- Almonds (of course) 750grams
- 1 1/2 C Castor sugar
- 2 Tbl Cinnamon
- 1 C water
2. Keep an eye on it and give it an occasional stir. The water will slowly evaporate.
3. When the water has just about evaporated add the cinnamon and continue to stir until all the water has gone and you are left with crystalized sugar on the almonds.
4. Pour out onto a tray and cool. When they are completely cold place in an airtight container. I think they will last a couple of weeks but they never last long enough in my house to find out.
