“An addictive snack that's great for parties or just having around the house--you'll be amazed how quickly they disappear!” - by katiebecck
Original recipe yields 2 1/2 cups almonds
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the almonds onto a baking sheet, and toast until the nuts start to turn golden brown and become fragrant, about 10 minutes. Watch the nuts carefully as they bake: they burn quickly.
- Stir together the sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper in a mixing bowl; set aside.
- Stir together the water, honey, and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to bubble, stir in the toasted almonds until evenly moistened. Pour the almonds into the sugar and spice mixture, and toss until evenly coated. Spread onto baking sheets in a single layer, and cool to room temperature.

"Simple Recipe. I made a few changes for what I had on hand. I toasted the almonds on the stove for about 5 mins (watch them carefully. I halved the recipe. I used honey instead of the sugar- so they s..." See moretayed a little sticky- that shouldn't be a problem if you use the sugar. The coating made just the right amount for the almonds. Not too sweet and the pepper adds just a touch of heat. I'll probably put in more next time."
"I just finished this Great recipe, made as directed. Yum! Very addictive, keep "tasting" while they are cooling. So far it seems the sugar will stay on nicely when I jar them. Others I made a lot of ..." See moresugar mix was at the bottom of the jar. I think the honey makes it stick well. I tried a few with some cinnamon they were super as well. Will add the cinnamon for the holidays. Recommend! UPD: sugar stayed on & didn't end up in the bottom of my jar....a winner!"
