    FloridaNative's Note:

    Salty, sweet and laced with smoke -- the perfect kind of almond for a party. If any remain the next day, savor them over a salad topped with sliced ripe pears and shaved Manchego cheese. From '' and posted for ZWT5. NOTE: Cooling time included in PREP time.

      NOTE: Spanish Marcona almonds have recently become more popular and more available. They're a little flatter than ordinary almonds, with a richer flavor. Always skinned, most Marcona almonds have already been sauteed in oil and lightly salted when you get them. For this recipe, select unsalted and oil-free nuts if you can, though either will work well. You can find them in specialty stores.

      Loved these! Liked that they had a little kick, but not too much of one. This was my first time trying Marcona almonds, too -- I like them so much better than the garden-variety almonds! I'm pretty sure DH is going to wipe these out pretty darn quick, good thing I snagged some before I left for work, lol. Thanks for posting! Made by a fellow Honey for ZWT8

      Spicy, sweet and delicious! They went on my snack tray for watching the Summer Games and flew faster than Ryan Lochte swims!
      Can't wait to make some for Christmas gifts. Enjoyed by Herbaceous Honey teammate for ZWT8.
