I am so excited to share with you this Sugar and Spice Almonds recipe. This recipe is crazy easy to make and taste amazing!
I made these up and gave them to a couple of friends for a surprise holiday gift. They were so happy and loved them. I loved that they are so easy to make and turn out fantastic.
I used to think making flavored almonds would take hours and hours and never took the time to find out the truth until this year. I imagined myself standing over a giant pot stirring and stirring for hours to get the almonds coated. Silly me, you only have to stir a few times and then they are done.
I guess I pictured the people at big events stirring the giant cauldrons of flavored nuts you can smell for miles away. I am happy to say these smell just as good and only take minimal effort. You don't have to stand around a giant cauldron stirring all day unless you really want to 🙂
