Intensify the flavour and add extra crunch to your almonds by toasting them first.

Ingredients

honey

¼ cup(s)

crushed red pepper flakes

¾ tsp(s)

almonds

3 cup(s), sliced, whole, natural, toasted (about 1 pound)

sugar

3 tbsp(s)

table salt

1 tsp(s)

chili powder

½ tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 165°C (325°F).
  2. Warm honey and crushed red pepper in a large skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Stir in almonds. Remove from heat and spread almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 18 minutes; cool 2 to 3 minutes. (Honey mixture will still be slightly sticky.)
  3. Combine sugar, salt and chili powder in a medium bowl. Place almonds in same bowl with sugar mixture; toss gently. Spread nuts on parchment paper or wax paper to cool completely. Store in an airtight container until ready to use. Yields about 10 nuts per serving.

Notes

The spicy-sweet coating tastes delicious on almonds or any nut such as pecans, peanuts or cashews.
