Incredibly simple to make, these almonds scream "Happy Holidays!" and yet...they're perfect for any day of the year. These will definitely out-do anything you'll pick-up at the mall or a baseball game...promise! Plus, the recipe doubles beautifully! However, when I make these next time I'll decrease the sugar even further to ¾ cup of each.
Ingredients
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups almonds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp water
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites and vanilla extract until foamy. Stir in almonds and mix to coat well; transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt; mix well. Pour the sugar mixture over the almonds and stir to coat well.
  3. Cook the almonds 3-4 hours on low, stirring every hour. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, add the water; mix well and cook an additional 30 minutes.
  4. Spread almonds out on parchment paper and allow to cool for 1-2 hours. Store in an air-tight container.
