Super-simple caramelized almonds


These are perfect to sprinkle in salads, add to ice cream, mix into cookies or brownies or blondies, nibble on before dinner, devour after dinner... yeah, pretty much anytime.

Super-simple caramelized almonds
200 g almonds (blanched or not)
3 tbsp golden syrup
1,5 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt

Pre-heat your oven to 175°C. In a saucepan, melt the sugar with the syrup and salted. Then add the almonds and give them a good stir. Pour onto a lined baking sheet (I use a silpat sheet) in as close to one layer as you can, and bake for 5-10 minutes. Watch closely, they can go from perfectly done to ruined and burnt quicker than you'd think. You want a fairly light golden brown.

Take out, let cool, then break apart. They keep for several days, and do NOT stick together.
