"Not your typical roasted almonds, these have a little kick of chili powder and the depth of more cinnamon than most recipes."

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan.
  2. Combine egg white and vanilla in large bowl; beat until frothy. Add almonds and toss to coat. Pour almonds into a mesh strainer to drain excess liquid, 5 to 10 minutes. Return strained almonds to the bowl.
  3. Stir white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, chili powder, and salt together in a bowl. Sprinkle sugar mixture over almonds and toss to coat evenly. Spread coated nuts evenly onto prepared jelly roll pan.
  4. Bake, stirring every 20 minutes, until the seasoning clings to the almonds, about 1 hour. Allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.

Way too much sugar! I reduced it to 1/4 white and 1/4 brown and it was still sweet. Maybe it would have been better with more salt too to balance the sugar taste.

Made these as others did with half the sugar, however kept the spice measurements the same. Absolutely wonderful! Makes a perfect homemade gift. A keeper for sure...thank you!

This recipe came out great! I used peanuts & almonds and cut both the sugars in half and added a bit more chili powder for more kick though.

Can I add fresh rosemary to make it more savory? Will it burn? Maybe leave out the cinnamon? I had dine almonds like this & vowed I would figure out how to make them at home.

I also halved sugars. And didnt hav cayenne so added abt 1/2 teasp Chipolte. OMGosh Sooooo Yummy!!!

Oh my! these are amazing! I will be making a bunch more. I used half the sugar, and some peppers I dried, from my garden, yum! I am going to send some to my son serving, in Afghanistan. perhaps ...
