Spiced Almonds – SRC

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday!

Today is I have for you a recipe from the Secret Recipe Club.  I am making a wonderful recipe from The Bitchen Kitchen.  Don’t you just love the name?  I had a hard time finding a recipe to make because everything looked so yummy!!  Ellie had so many recipes, from cheesy dips to lots of delicious looking cupcakes!!  Oh the cupcakes!!!  They are drool worthy and so creative!!   She even has one with a pepper in it!  🙂

With Fall here I have always wanted to make Candied Nuts, but for some reason I just never did, well now I can say I have.  Ellie had a recipe for Candied Pecans and her description from them, she said they are addicting and addicting they are!   I didn’t have pecans, so I decided to use almonds instead.  I love my almonds.

When I named Ellie’s Candied Pecans, I by accident changed the name to Spiced Almonds.  I think it’s because I cut back on the sugar and they do taste sweet, yet they have a slightly spicy flavor to them due to the nutmeg and cayenne pepper.  My Husband said they tasted like pumpkin to him.  My guess is that it is due to the  nutmeg and cinnamon spices.  I think he’s kind of right, and you know I like my pumpkin!  No wonder why I like this recipe.  I love these nuts!!!  They are so perfect and so darn good!!!  I bet you can’t eat just one!

This recipe is really easy to make and the smell from the nuts roasting in the oven made my house smell so good!!!  I’ll tell yah, roasting nuts is so much better than plain.  I also like them better when I roast them compared to buying them already roasted.  They seem softer and have so much more flavor.  I have even cooked nuts in my skillet, once you smell their aroma, the nuts are done!!

    These look so good! Now I want to make candied almonds! Thanks for the love. ~Ellie

  12. Those look awesome – I think I’d eat the whole batch in one sitting 🙂 Great choice.

  13. Right about this time last year I went thru a major almond-roasting love affair. They are so good all candied up like this. I never made them with egg whites, though. However, that seems to be a popular way to get the coating to stick. Must try it!

  14. Your post just reminded me of how much I love candied almonds! The spices you use sound so good, I can’t wait to try this!!

  15. I love candied almonds and this recipe sounds fantastic. So easy to put together and what a treat! 🙂

  16. Nice. I was actually thinking to myself last night, while making my smoothie, that candied almonds would have been perfect in my smoothie. Gr8 minds think alike.

  17. Candied almonds are one of my favorite treats. I love the pepper in this version!
