Honey & Spice Roasted Almonds

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. + cooling


about 2 cups

Seasoned nut mixes can be expensive to buy. So I buy unblanched almonds to toast and season at home. The sweet honey and spicy cayenne pepper come together beautifully.—Patty Getzin, Wenatchee, Washington

  • 1-1/2 cups unblanched almonds
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Arrange almonds in a single layer in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, salt and cayenne; set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add roasted almonds and honey; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining sugar; cook 1 minute longer or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; add reserved sugar mixture and toss to coat.
  3. Immediately spread onto waxed paper; cool completely. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
