Cinnamon Sugar Almonds

I LOVE cinnamon sugar almonds and thought it would be the perfect treat to send to my family that I couldn’t spend Thanksgiving with. They loved them by the way! Recipe below!
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1.5 cups light brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4.5 cups raw almonds
  • ¼ cup water
Instructions
  1. Spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk together.
  3. In another large bowl, add the egg white and vanilla and whisk until frothy.
  4. Pour the almonds in the egg mixture and toss them around to coat thoroughly.
  5. Pour the coated almonds into the sugar mixture and toss to coat.
  6. Pour the entire mixture into the slow cooker and turn to low.
  7. Cook for 3-3.5 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. It will look like not much is happening for a long time but your house will smell good!
  8. After 3 hours, pour in the ¼ cup of water and stir well. This is going to make the crunchy coating and things will start looking right. Leave in the slow cooker for another 20-30 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  10. When done, pour the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet and separate any that stuck together. Let them cool slightly to harden then enjoy!

Thanks Persnicketyplates.com for this great recipe. These almonds were soo delicious. I know in most households these almonds went really quick. It is quite the process, but they are so good!

Enjoy!!
