Cinnamon Sugar Almonds

If you make one thing this holiday season, it should be candied almonds. I made these cinnamon sugar candied almonds as a gift, and you should too, because they are incredibly easy and delicious. As my roommate put it, "They should make a candle that smells like that!" The recipe is so simple, and easily adaptable to any flavors you like.

Cinnamon Sugar and Allspice Candied Almonds
Makes 12 ounces

12 oz raw almonds
1/2 c sugar
1/8 c water
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice

1. In a pot combine water and sugar, and heat on medium-high heat until dissolved.
2. Add spices, then almonds. Stir to coat completely
3. Keep stirring until sugar crystalizes (about 5-8 minutes). Make sure to keep stirring or the almonds will get stuck.
4. Remove from heat and put almonds on parchment or wax paper to cool.
