Top Review by AKillian24

These were good! A great change from the normal snack mix at a get-together. A couple of notes that might help someone: 1) It's EXTREMELY important not to cooke these longer than listed. The almonds will appear very similar to 'normal'. If you wait until they go 'dark', they're burnt and will taste icky! 2) 4 tsps of cinnamon might seem like a lot, but truly: It's just right. In fact, I even sprinkled a bit more on while they were warm after tasting one. C) I stirred my pan about every 10-15 minutes while baking.
