I liked the sugar spiced almonds better, but made some of these for friends who are not fond of spicy foods

Yum!!! As I was making it, I was starting to wonder how in the world it was ever going to coat the almonds, but...keep stirring!! The sugar and butter will melt eventually! Delicious!!

I made these to go into a spinach salad and everyone could not stop eating them before I actually got them into the salad. Yum!

OMG...these were awesome!! I almost didn't have enough for the gift baskets b/c my daughter and I couldn't stop eating them!! SOOOOOOOO GOOOD!
