Candied Almonds

Candied Almonds via elisebakes  I’ve mentioned that I very recently graduation college and have just begun the job hunt.  That said, money is tight this Christmas, so most of my gifts are handmade.  For my dad and grandma: candied nuts (among other homemade goodies).  I made several different types of candied nuts last year and it was actually much simpler than I had anticipated.  This recipe is really easy to follow and the final product is great!  Actually, it’s amazing – better than any of the types I made last year!  We’ve already eaten a few handfuls – might have to make another batch before Christmas!
