From California Almonds, this recipe was a huge hit at my Christmas party last year. It's simple to make and would make great gifts. Time does not include cooling down after rolling in sugar.

These were a hit, but the flavor of the honey was overwhelming. Next time I'll add some vanilla extract to round out the flavor a bit. Thanks!
