Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Cinnamon Roasted AlmondsOver the summer I tried some cinnamon almonds made by my friend Cathy at Wives with Knives. The almonds were amazingly delicious and my kids, especially my daughter, loved them. I picked up a bag of plain almonds recently and decided to try to recreate those fantastic nuts. My son and I had a great time making these tasty treats together. They were crunchy, salty, and sweet – the perfect combination. Thanks for inspiring me to make these almonds Cathy.

    Your almonds look fantastic, Pam. I bet the brown sugar gives them a lot of flavor. What a fun project to do with your little cutie pie.

    Thank you so much for the link to my blog. I appreciate the shout out.

    I am printing this out in the hopes that I will have time before my sister-in-law's wedding this Saturday to make this recipe. I am having the whole family over the night before the wedding and this would be the PERFECT thing to set out while everyone is waiting to eat.
