Spiced Candied Almonds

image

Sweet, spicy and a hint of chilli is the trio of flavour you will get with these candied almonds that crystallize as they cool down. The sugar flecks off of them with salt to lift the sweetness.

Almonds are great for vitamin E and in turn for your skin and hair. What better way than to have them do a wonderful job for the body but also a taste sensation for our palettes!

I used less sugar so that I got a crisp coating on the almond rather than a sticky one, I know I will be making these again! And very soon!!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole almonds
½ cup granulated sugar
⅓ tsp mixed spice
pinch of red chilli powder
1 tbsp water
Sea Salt for sprinkling

METHOD

• Line a baking sheet with some greaseproof paper

• In a thick bottom base saucepan gently heat the sugar, water, chilli and mixed spice

• After a minute or so slowly add the almonds and keep stirring with a wooden spoon still on a low heat

image

• When the caramel starts to get sticky and brown, transfer the almonds to the lined baking sheet and sprinkle with some salt

image

• Once the almonds cool, separate them and store them in an airtight container. But to be honest they might not get from the baking sheet to the container! Ours didn’t! Lol 😉

  1. Wow! These almonds are sumptuous!! I’d better forget I’ve seen your post or I might try to do them and for sure they would not reach the container… :)))

    My 3 year old has just about recovered and now my youngest was lucky to get the chicken pox. I have many a recipe and pictures to write and put up but busy with my little ones!
    I hope you enjoy these spiced candied almonds in the meantime friends!
    Have a restful weekend! Much love D x

  3. Love the idea of adding chilli to these Dimple! These are sold in small packets thru’ out the city in winter here and they just taste so good, especially when you are cold & miserable 🙂
