  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups whole almonds


  • Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Grease the baking mat/parchment paper with butter.
  • In a nonstick pan, combine sugar, water, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Add almonds. Cook and stir the mixture until the water has evaporated. It will change from liquid to syrup to a stringy consistency and then crystalize onto the almonds. Be sure to stir consistently throughout.
  • Pour the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet and separate them with forks or a spatula. Let cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Store almonds in an airtight container.
