These turned out yummy! I followed the advice of a previous reviewers who suggested you leave the nuts in the syrup a minute or two longer and not bother with the slotted spoon; just dump the whole batch of nuts onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Cool slightly, separate the nuts a bit and put them into a plastic ziploc bag containing the 1 cup of turbinado sugar, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp cayenne. Of course you can adjust the amounts to taste depending on the sweet-salty-spicy ratio you prefer. Shake them up well to coat and pour them onto a fresh piece of parchment on the baking sheet. Separate any clumps and let cool. Quick, easy and tasty!


Loved these almonds. I decreased the temperature to 325 and roasted the almonds a few minutes longer. I also used twice as much almonds (4 cups) to the same amount of honey because I noticed there was a lot of honey left over. It worked great. I also added cinnamon and 1/4 teas clove. kicked it up a notch!


After buying honey cinnamon almonds at a street faire, I decided I wanted to try & make my own. I found this recipe to be the closest to the ones I bought & they turned out great. My husband says he even liked these better! The only changes I made was to use 3 C almonds rather than 2 & I added about 1 T cinnamon to the sugar. Perfect for snacking!
