Candied Almonds

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I needed a quick hostess gift for a dinner party. I recommend roasting the almonds first so they will be crunchy. I put mine in the oven @ 350 for about 8-10 minutes and put them in the freezer (5 min or less) to let them cool before starting the sugar mixture. I started the sugar mixture and let it cook till the cool ball stage as another reviewer suggested. After I added 3 Cups of nuts, I reduced the temperature and kept it between medium and simmer. To check the cooking time, I'd pull a nut out every few minutes and place it on parchment paper. Once a nut held the glaze when slightly cooled, I shut off the heat and kept stirring until all the syrup was gone. Then I poured them out on parchment paper and lightly broke them up with a wooden spoon. I put the cooled product in a Ball Jar, tied it with a ribbon and I'm set for my party.
