Servings 7 servings
- 1/4 cup salted butter
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 14 oz natural almonds
Prepare a cookie sheet by either lining with a silicone liner or parchment paper.
In a large nonstick sauce pan, combine the butter, water, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
Bring to a boil.Add in the almonds, and continue to boil while stirring constantly.
The mixture will go from a liquid to a thick syrup to the sugared mixture that sticks to the almonds in about 10-15 minutes.
Once the water has boiled out and you are left with just the sugary mixture, immediately pour the almonds out onto the prepared cookie sheet and spread the mixture out and allow it to cool.
Once the almonds are cool, bread up the pieces and serve.
