These almonds make a very nice present wrapped in cellophane or in a glass jar. They also come in quite handy, when you've forgotten to stock up on sweets and suddenly crave something sugary and delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 200 g almonds (with skins)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (White works as well)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Mix together water, both kinds of sugar and cinammon. Stir well.
  2. Put almonds in a microwave proof dish and cover with sugar coating. (See that all of them are coverd neatly).
  3. Microwave almond-sugar mixture for 3 minutes (700Watt).
  4. Take out of microwave oven and stir (mixture begins to be bubbly, be careful, it's very hot).
  5. Microwave again for about 2-3 minutes. (Mixture is supposed to be lightly crumbly, dark and partly gleamy. Depends on your microwave's "peculiarity").
  6. Line a baking tray with non stick kitchen paper.
  7. Transfer almond mixture to tray and separate/spread evenly.
  8. Let dry and cool for about 5-10minutes.
