Apparently there was a running joke on my mom’s side of the family when Christmas would roll around. One year, my dad raved about the smokehouse almonds my grandfather shared with us on one of our annual visits to North Dakota. From then on, all family members got a gallon sized tin of said nuts. Year after year. So when I knew my aunt and uncle were going to accompany us on our RV adventure across America (well, maybe just 3 states…but Nebraska has to count as at least 1 1/2!), I knew I had to bring some almonds along. Sweet, crunchy almonds flavored with a nice dose of vanilla and cinnamon. These Vanilla Almonds are crack in nut form. Truly irresistible!!!
These candied vanilla almonds would make excellent holiday gifts, salad toppers or football game munchies. Definitely versatile and so simple to whip up. My friends and I are sharing a few recipes to a theme: Crunchy Goodness. I’d say these qualify big time. Check out all the other crunchy treats shared by scrolling down to the bottom of this post.
