Vanilla Apple Pie Spiced Almonds
Shelia made these highly addictive…can’t put them down…best snack ever…vanilla apple pie spiced candied almonds for me yesterday. They were so yummy. I use “were” because they are now gone, less than 12 hours after she gave me a box. I told her I need this recipe. I am thinking these are going to be perfect to make as teacher gifts this year. I am going to make a few batches and then give them as gifts with adorable little candy dishes. That is, if they last long enough to make it out the door.
- 1 tablespoon Fresco Vanilla Apple Pie Spice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups roasted whole almonds
Combine water, sugar and vanilla apple pie spice in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling add the almonds to the saucepan. Continue to stir the combination until the liquid has been absorbed and evaporated leaving a syrup like coating on the almonds. Pour the almonds onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper and separate with a fork. Allow the almonds to cool about 15 minutes before you enjoy them. And don’t say I didn't warn you when you can’t stop.
These make just the perfect gifts.
Tip: If you buy raw instead of roasted almonds, no problem. Roast your almonds by simply spreading them out on a baking sheet and roast them in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
