Honey Roasted Almonds

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole almonds
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon almond oil

Preparation

Spread almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in a cold oven. 


Turn oven on to 350 degrees. Bake almonds, stirring occasionally, until light tan, 
12 to 15 minutes. 


Meanwhile, mix sugar and salt together in a small bowl; sprinkle about 1 
tablespoon of the sugar mixture into a large bowl. 


Stir honey, water and almond oil together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add 
almonds; cook and stir until almonds have absorbed all the liquid, about 5 
minutes. 


Transfer coated almonds to large bowl sprinkled with sugar mixture. Sprinkle 
remaining sugar mixture over almonds; toss to coat evenly. 


Spread almonds onto waxed paper to cool completely. Store at room 
temperature in a tightly covered container or plastic bag. 


Serve to someone nice and naughty.
