¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 ½ cups whole almonds
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon oil


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, salt and cayenne pepper and mix well. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk the water, honey and oil ingredients.

Spread the almonds onto a large baking sheet (you may need more than one). As a single layer, toast almonds for about 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Watch the almonds as they bake because they burn quickly. Remove from heat.

Place a large skillet or fry pan over medium heat. Add the liquid ingredients, stirring constantly. Once the mixture begins to bubble, stir in the toasted almonds in batches until almonds are coated. Remove from heat. Add almonds to the sugar/salt/spice mixture and lightly mix or toss until almonds are evenly coated. Transfer almonds back to baking sheet in a single layer to cool at room temperature. Enjoy!
