Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

For our neighbor gifts this year I made up a few batches of Cinnamon roasted Almonds! I LOVE those things, and had I known they were so easy and quick to make I woulda made them a long time ago. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t though :)

Printed out our Christmas card, made up a tag to go with it, stuff in a cute box and wrap with twine!

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

{Recipe by Something Swanky}

3 cups whole almonds, raw
1 cup sugar
1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup water

In a large skillet or pot combine the sugar, cinnamon and water over medium-high heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the almonds and stir constantly with a spoon or spatula, coating the almonds with the syrupy mixture.
Keep stirring until the sugar crystallizes (this takes about 8-10 minutes) and it looks sandy. Don’t stop stirring!
Remove the pan from heat and scoop the almonds onto wax or parchment paper.
Let the cinnamon almonds cool for a few minutes before serving.
