This recipe for Sweet and Spicy Almonds first appeared last year on Studio Delicious, and it’s a keeper. These almonds are totally addicting and have a nice balance of sweet and spicy flavor – just perfect to have around during the holidays, and easy to put together too.
I would like to report that my hand and wrist are pounding from carpel tunnel surgery, and the dog has gingivitis.
This has nothing to do with the Sweet and Spicy Almonds recipe today, but hear me out.
If you’ve ever tried to brush a large and unwilling Labrador Retriever’s teeth, you have my complete respect.
One very important thing I’ve learned is that dogs don’t really like or want their teeth brushed, ever.
While hand surgery is an inconvenience, it’s a great way to get out of making dinner and doing the dishes for at least a week, and maybe two.
Another important discovery made during my convalescence is I can totally make a pancake with one hand.
I’m so glad I finally proved this to myself and the world 🙂
I’ve been eating these amazing Sweet and Spicy Almonds I made and stored in jars last week while both my hands were still working.
There are a million recipes out there for spicy nuts, because they’re practically mandatory during the holidays.
This beauty is from Martha Stewart Food Everyday – and these almonds are crunchy, savory, sweet and very, very tasty.
The recipe for Sweet and Spicy Almonds is straight-forward, and thanks to Martha, the recipe works every time.
Sweet and Spicy Almonds would be super cute loosely packed in cellophane bags and tied with a festive ribbon.
They make a perfect little hostess gift too, or a satisfying bite to enjoy with cold beverages and close friends.
PIN THIS RECIPE FOR LATER!
