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.

Can I use already roasted salted almonds


Friday 7th of April 2023

I made these today with cashews for my son’s birthday. They tasted amazing but I think I did one thing wrong. When adding the nuts to the boiling honey mixture, do you turn the stove off or boil them while you stir? I turned the stove off and they did not absorb the liquid so I turn the range back on but I still had a good bit of the liquid left? Did I not stir it long enough? Anyway, I poured it on parchment paper and sprinkled with the brown sugar mixture, and let them cool. My son has devoured about half of them, but he has to wash his hands because they are so sticky! Not that he minds! Lol 😆! They even stuck to the parchment paper. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for the recipe. It’s delicious!

Have you ever used the fiery sweet mesquite honey? I think I’ll give it a whirl.

I have been on the Candy almond journey for a couple years. Every recipe came out unsatisfactory. Sugar was to much or fell off. Not only do I love the honey flavor in this but it is the best almonds I have made. Definitely a keeper!
