Expert Tips

You can add chili powder or other spices to the mix to vary the flavors and give it a personal touch.

We often don’t know what to bring along as a gift when we’re invited to someone’s home during the holidays. These caramel-coated almonds are always welcome, whether they’re served as an appetizer or with coffee. At home I usually serve them with cheese and fruit. Remember to wrap them in a cute bag or in a box with a nice bow, and include the recipe.

Place the almonds in airtight jars or decorated bags for use as gifts.

The almonds will last 2 weeks. There’s no need to refrigerate them.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 250 °F.
  • 2 Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 3 Place the sugar, cinnamon and salt in a bag and mix well.
  • 4 In a large bowl, place the egg white, water and vanilla. Beat with a fork until blended, about 1 minute. Add the almonds and stir well, until all the almonds are coated.
  • 5 Using a slotted spoon, take out the almonds and add them to the bag of sugar. Close and shake until all the almonds are covered in sugar.
  • 6 Place the almonds on the baking sheet, over the parchment paper, and spread evenly to make one layer.
  • 7 Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so.
  • 8 Let cool completely before serving.
