Everyone loves these almonds and they're very easy to make. I always use less cayenne and Tabasco than called for but if you like heat use the full amounts. Store in a freezer bag in the freezer. Great for hostess gifts!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring corn syrup, butter and water to a boil in a saucepan large enough to hold the almonds.
  2. Stir in spices.
  3. Add almonds and stir to coat.
  4. Place on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake at 275 degrees for 1 hour.
  5. Stir every 15 minutes to distribute the glaze and separate the nuts.
  6. Cool and break apart any nuts that are stuck together.

Delicious! Not too spicy. Served on top of Nantucket Bleu Spinach Salad, #50875. Balanced it perfectly and add just the right crunch.

Very tasty and not overly spicy as the name would suggest. The heat is more of an aftertaste. Next time I might add some garlic powder to make it a little more savory. Easy to make.

These are very tasty. Used amounts of seasonings called for and wouldn't decrease them, perhaps even increase the hot sauce (just a little!) I think I used too much butter, however, as the almonds were swimming in it by the end of the baking time, and were a bit too buttery rich. I'm going to cut back on the butter content next time. Very easy to make, and a wonderful sweet/savoury flavour and crunchy texture. Glad I found your recipe!
