Honey Roasted Almonds

Honey Roasted Almonds – A quick and easy snack perfect for the holidays! Roasted almonds coated in a delicious honey glaze.

Honey Roasted Almonds

I’ve been dying to make these Honey Roasted Almonds for months! After I made the maple cinnamon candied walnuts, I knew I had to try making more candied nuts because they were just so good. I always enjoy things that have both honey and almonds in them so I decided to combine them into one delicious snack. Needless to say, they were devoured incredibly quickly and for good reason! I’d find myself eating a handful every time I went into the kitchen and then coming back to grab another handful immediately after.

These candied almonds are great either served for the holidays or as a simple snack. One year, I gave these almonds out as Christmas gifts in festive little tins and they were a big hit. Additionally, they can be a fun addition to a charcuterie board.

Hi. Can I ask if I can substitute brown sugar for the coconut sugar as it isn't available where I live.
