These turned out yummy! I followed the advice of a previous reviewers who suggested you leave the nuts in the syrup a minute or two longer and not bother with the slotted spoon; just dump the whole batch of nuts onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Cool slightly, separate the nuts a bit and put them into a plastic ziploc bag containing the 1 cup of turbinado sugar, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp cayenne. Of course you can adjust the amounts to taste depending on the sweet-salty-spicy ratio you prefer. Shake them up well to coat and pour them onto a fresh piece of parchment on the baking sheet. Separate any clumps and let cool. Quick, easy and tasty!

Didn't like the texture of the coarse sugar. It stuck together once stored (after it was totally cool.) Wouldn't make this again.

Loved these almonds. I decreased the temperature to 325 and roasted the almonds a few minutes longer. I also used twice as much almonds (4 cups) to the same amount of honey because I noticed there was a lot of honey left over. It worked great. I also added cinnamon and 1/4 teas clove. kicked it up a notch!

After buying honey cinnamon almonds at a street faire, I decided I wanted to try & make my own. I found this recipe to be the closest to the ones I bought & they turned out great. My husband says he even liked these better! The only changes I made was to use 3 C almonds rather than 2 & I added about 1 T cinnamon to the sugar. Perfect for snacking!

I bought some premium nut mix at a large wholesale club. It was unsalted. So I used this to spruce it up. Easy to make, however I would caution that instead of using a slotted spoon to fish out the nuts, dump the whole thing on the parchment, then while after cooling slightly but still warm dump it in the plastic bag with the sugar, then back to the cookie sheet lines with fresh parchment. That way you can break up any big clumps and sprinkle it lightly with sea salt while it cools. That makes it 5 stars and easier to make as you are not fishing around for the nuts that way.

Used a vegan shortening for the butter and splenda mixed with 3 packets of truvia sweetener & sea salt for coating. I left half the batch of almonds in the honey mixture for an additional 3-4 minutes, and they turned out so much better than the first half. Following the review, I dumped the mixture onto parchment, slightly cooled, and then tossed with the sugar mixture. Excellent!

These are amazing. They are easy to make, and I added some cinnamon to the sugar to make them more delicious! I gave them to all my co-workers at our annual Christmas party, packaged in small holiday gift bags, and one person said they tasted like the ones from the mall. I've already made 2 batches in one week and two more tonight for Christmas. Thanks!!

I used pecans for this and they came out absolutely FANTASTIC! I measured out 2 cups and the amount of honey mixture was almost perfect. I only had a little bit left over since pecans are bigger than almonds. I didn't roast the nuts, though, but I will next time. My pecans ended up slightly soggy. Maybe I just didn't give them enough time to cool down before I tossed them in the sugar. Oh well. They were still addicting and I will definitely make them again!!!!
