easy candied almond recipe

Jump to Recipe

This easy candied almond recipe is an easy recipe. The perfect sweet snack.

I make this recipe every year for my family. There’s no Christmas time without the perfect candied almonds, especially for my Mother. I make a bunch at once and gift them to friends and family. The almonds are very addictive so be careful. They taste sweet, salty, nutty and have a glitch of cinnamon, allspice and vanilla, the perfect Christmas treat.

ingredients for the easy candied almond recipe

  • Almonds.

    Did you know that almonds are actually seeds and not nuts ? I didn’t. The seed has a fantastic nutritional profile. It contains a lot of fiber, protein, fat, vitamin E, Manganese, and Magnesium. Almonds are an amazing source of antioxidants. They are concentrated in the brown layer of the skin, so use the ones with the skin on. The seeds can lower cholesterol level, and prevent harmful oxidation of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.
  • Sugar.

    I use white sugar for this recipe, but brown sugar works as well.
  • Water.

    You will need a few spoon of water.
  • Vanilla extract.

    High quality vanilla extract, no vanilla flavor.
  • Cinnamon.

    Ground cinnamon for an amazing “Christmas“ taste. I highly recommend buying cinnamon sticks and to ground and ground them freshly at home.
  • Allspice.

    I love to cook with this amazing spice. It’s an allrounder. The dried berry is not only special because of its unique taste, it is also a very healthy spice which has multiple uses in folk medicine. Allspice contains different plant compounds such as Eugenol (has a potential antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and cancer fighting properties), Quercetin, Gallic acid (antioxidant, which has cancer fighting and antiviral effects), and Ericfolin (has cancer fighting properties).
