- 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.
