DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat your candy thermometer. Combine the sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium and stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Turn the heat up to medium high, then place the thermometer into the pan. The temperature will slowly rise. Cook until the soft ball stage, 240°F.
  • Once the syrup reaches that temperature, remove from the heat.
  • Place the butter, vanilla, and almonds in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Pour in the syrup and mix everything together until the almonds are covered with the syrup.
  • It will take about 2 hours for the syrup to crystallize. It should turn out as a soft glaze.
