Spicy Candied Almonds #GardenCuizine #SuperBowl #Snack

Spicy Candied Almonds

Candied nuts with cinnamon and spice give your body nutrition while providing flavor to your taste-buds. A few is all you need to satisfy and serve as a stand alone snack. For those who can safely eat nuts, spiced nuts make a welcomed homemade gift from your kitchen. I made these at Christmas and just made another batch for Super Bowl Sunday snacking!


2 cups lightly salted whole almonds
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon (or more!) ground hot peppers from your garden (or store bought cayenne)
2 Tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch sea salt

Putting it all together

preheat oven to 375 deg F

Spread the almonds onto a foil-lined baking sheet; bake 5 min
Remove from oven and set aside to cool
  • In a medium bowl, sift sugar with spices
  • Add water and vanilla; stir to combine
  • Stir in nuts; save the foil lined cookie sheet
On stove-top, medium heat, preheat a 10-inch cast iron skillet
when hot, add nut mixture
  • Cook 3 min, mixture will get bubbly
  • Stir
  • Cook another 3 minutes
Spread onto the foil lined baking sheet
Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt
Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight baggie - I let them sit overnight

Serve with other healthy snacks such as fruits, cheese and/or veggies and dip.
