These almonds make an excellent party snack, or make them for a tv snack or weekend treat.

Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: About 35 minutes
Total Time: 43 minutes




Instructions:

  1. Heat the oven to 300 F.
  2. Put almonds and oil in a shallow baking pan; stir until almonds are coated.
  3. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring frequently. Cool.
  4. Combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, and water in a saucepan; cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Boil to 236 F of a candy thermometer, or to soft ball stage.*
  5. Remove from heat; blend in vanilla.
  6. Add almonds and stir until mixture is creamy. Turn out onto waxed paper and use a fork to separate almonds.
*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
