Praline Almonds

Incorporating nuts in your diet is healthy and it's quite easy to roast and flavor them at home - be it spicy, salty or sweet.  Today's recipe is one that I made over the holidays and packed as a gift for a few of my husband's colleagues.... This also turned out to be a tasty snack that we enjoyed as well.
It's a really simple recipe and doesn't need a lot of ingredients. The cream and sugar caramelize together and give a tasty crunch to the almonds.

PRALINE ALMONDS



Ingredients:

Almonds - 2 cups, whole
Light brown sugar - half cup
Heavy Cream - 4 tbsp

Method:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread a baking sheet with some parchment paper and coat with a light spray of oil. 

2) In a bowl, toss together the almonds, brown sugar and heavy cream. 

3) Spread this almond mixture over the prepared baking sheet  and bake in oven for about 20 mins or so (until the coating is dry).. stirring once or twice in between...  

4) Remove from oven and allow to cool (it will get crispier as it cools) and store in an airtight container and Enjoy :)
