On the 5th Day of Sugar my true love gave to me . . . . Cinnamon Roasted Almonds
Today yours truly (that’s me) is sharing a super duper easy recipe.
You know those amazing cinnamon roasted almonds you smell at the malls about this time of year . . .the ones you can’t help but stop and take a sample of and then pay an armload for because that little sample you ate was not even enough to satisfy you. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Well now you won’t have to sacrifice your first born to buy some because you can make them at home. These cinnamon roasted almonds are delicious and addicting and easy as pie to make.
These almonds were another thing I demonstrated at the cooking class in our ward. The ladies were going bonkers over them. So simple to make and your house will smell AMAZING!
Another great neighbor gift, package them up in a cellophane bag with ribbon or a cute little box. . . you will be the rock star of your neighborhood if you give out these babies.
