Just look at that shine, it's all candy! Adapted from Cook's.com Honey Roasted Almonds, candied almonds are fabulously tasty things. I couldn't stop eating them so I ended up giving them away. A while back I started to carry a snack bag of plain raw almonds in my purse and since then I have not had to make an emergency stop at Tim Horton’s. I wanted a change, but you know the saying, if something tastes too good it probably is.

2 cups whole raw almonds
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp water
2 tsp light olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt

• Spread the almonds in a single layer on a rimmed baking pan and place in a cold oven.
• Bake for 12-15 minutes at 375F, stirring occasionally, until the internal colour of nuts is tan.
• Remove from oven and set aside.
• Turn the oven down to 250F.
• In a medium size pan stir together the honey, water and oil and bring to the boil.
• Stir in the sugar and the salt.
• Stir in the roasted almonds and continue to cook and stir until all the liquid has been absorbed by the nuts.
• Meanwhile line the rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
• Next, transfer the nuts onto the parchment lined baking pan.
• Separate the clumps and continue to roast at 250F until the nuts are glassy and are no longer sticky to the touch.
• These could last well.
