Candied Almonds

This is not my recipe, and am unsure of where it comes from. But it’s a quick to make, and fairly simple clean up. And their addictive as all get out.

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole unblanched almonds

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum

Place sugar in a large bowl.

Beat egg lightly in medium size bowl. Stir in vanilla extract and salt. Add almonds, tossing until coated with egg mixture.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the almonds to sugar in a bowl; toss well to coat almonds evenly. Remove coated almonds to the prepared baking sheet, spacing the almonds 1/2 inch apart.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until almonds are golden. Cool almonds completely on baking sheet. Store in airtight containers for up to 1 month.
