Here at Brittany’s Pantry, I am toasting up some almonds to munch on during a New Years cocktail party, football game, or just as a healthy snack this season! They are easy and they pack and travel well. Definitely keep them in mind if you need to fill up a Christmas tin for friends and family! When i was young, we ALWAYS had nuts in the house during the holidays. So I continue what I love and make them often with my own little family!
3 c whole almonds
1 c sugar
1/2 c water
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 c sesame seeds
Cover a large sheet pan with parchment or wax paper. Set aside. In a large saute pan, combine the sugar, water, and allspice over medium heat. Stir often until the mixture starts to bubble and boil, then stir continuously. When the liquid drips from your spoon and forms a thread (thread stage or between 225 and 235 degrees F on a candy thermometer) add the almonds and seeds. Stir well, coating the nuts, and continue to stir as the sugar starts to crystalize. When the nuts start to look ‘dry’, remove to the sheet pan and spread out to cool. DO NOT TOUCH! The sugar is SUPER hot! Let cool completely and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
