These candied almonds make for an irresistible snack. The nuts are oven-baked before being stirred into a sweet honey mixture and cooled. They store well and make a great homemade gift, too.

2 cups whole almonds, skins on
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons almond or vegetable oil


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spread the almonds in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until toasted.

Remove the pan from the oven and set aside.

Combine the sugar and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

Combine the honey, water, and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Stir the almonds into the honey mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the nuts are mostly dry.

Immediately transfer the nuts to the bowl with the sugar and quickly stir to coat the nuts in the sugar.

Spread the nuts out on waxed paper in a single layer and let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

recipe tips

Stir the almonds frequently while baking for even toasting and to prevent burning.

Be careful when handling the honey mixture as it can get very hot.

Coat the almonds in the honey mixture quickly to make sure they are evenly coated.

Spread the coated almonds in a single layer on waxed paper to cool to avoid clumping.

Let the almonds cool completely before storing or they may get soggy.

For added flavor, consider adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the honey mixture.

For a boozy version, replace all or some of the water with bourbon.

If using salted almonds, reduce the amount of salt in the recipe.

Store the almonds in a cool, dry place.

    To keep from sticking, I tossed them with some powdered sugar. Worked great!

    I have made this recipe several times now. Nuts come out perfectly. Thank you!

    These are the best snack. I give them a 5 star. I didn't give them a chance to cool, was eating them and pulled out my crown, even that didn't stop me.

    Just made these and added a 1/4 tsp of cayenne to the sugar mixture. So good!! You need to really spread them out to cool (not touching, as much as possible) for no sticking. Great recipe! Thanks!

    I did as the others recommended: I increased the volume of almonds to 2.5 cups. I also only roasted the almonds for 10 minutes at 170C. I also extended the cooking time of the nuts in the liquid by a couple of minutes. I found that my almonds worked out beautifully!

    I give this recipe a 4 instead of a 5 because while they are delicious, and exactly the flavor I was seeking, they do come out sticky. I put them back into a 250 degree oven for 20 minutes and that helped some. Next time I try it, I would use a bit less of the liquids to see if that makes a difference.

    These are very good. Mine have not had a chance to dry out very long so they are sticky and sticking together on the wax paper, but the flavor is wonderful. Next time I will bake the almonds only 6 minutes (my oven bakes a little on the hot side) and I will increase the almonds by a half cup so they are a little less sticky. These will be made many more times!
