I made these and then put them in an empty canister of commercial honey-roasted almonds... and everyone thought that they WERE commercial. Nobody could believe that I made them, and they said that these were even better than the store-bought honey-roasted almonds. We'll be making these again. I did use a sheet of silver foil instead of waxed paper. Thanks for posting!
Very good and sweet! I used hazelnut oil. The only thing I highly suggest is to place on a sil pad or greased parchment. Not wax paper. It does stick to it and it`s not very pleasant to bite into wax or to remove it from all the nuts.
So delicious! I made two batches and with one, I accidentally added too much salt but they were excellent as well. Sweet and salty. Really can't go too wrong with this recipe. Thanks for posting it!
Delicious and easy, I highly recommend it. The aroma reminded me of streets in Germany during holiday season (my husband is from there). I used torbinado sugar I got from someone who went to Barnados, so it might have been milder flavor. I wanted to use up walnut oil I didn't know what to do with and that created rather strong smell I didn't care for. So I added almond extract and ginger in the water mixture, and cinnamon toward the end with sugar (I wasn't sure how much sugar but probably not enough. The nuts got stuck together somewhat. But they broke off easy by hand). Because of the amount of sugar not being indicated clearly (other than the amount for water mixture), this recipe got four stars instead of five. It was sweet enough but not too sweet, just right for our family which prefer less sugar.
I loved these...been trying to find an easy, no sautee way to make candied nuts...this was great. Like Rita, I did use a sil pad, not wax paper. Thanks Charbear!!
