Candied Cinnamon & Sugar Almonds

I recently discovered the beauty of candied nuts. Last Christmas, I saw Kelsey Nixon make some on the Cooking Channel and had to try them. From then on, I’ve been hooked, but have always associated them with wintertime. It was only until recently when I took a cooking class at Sur la Table (which was AMAZING) that I realized they really are great all year around. The chef who was teaching my class made cinnamon candied walnuts that I devoured (even shamefully licking my finger to gather the excess sugar at the bottom of my bowl!). I decided this weekend to make some of my own and used an amazing recipe. Here’s my step-by-step guide of making candied almonds! Enjoy!
