I'm sure everyone has seen (and smelled) that cart of cinnamon nuts at the mall and local festivals. I don't know why, but I've never made them at home until now. I saw almonds on sale this week and grabbed a bag with this sweet snack in mind. It's so easy and your house will smell amazing as they roast in the oven. Be sure to stir every 20 minutes or it will start to stick together. Try it with almonds, pecans, walnuts, or whatever you like!
This is our last week of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats and I've had fun trying new recipes along the way. I hope you have gotten some great ideas for sweets to share with your family and friends. A big thank you to Brenda from Meal Planning Magic for organizing and setting everything up for us. As always, the other recipes will be linked at the bottom of this post.

- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon cold water
- 2 cups whole almonds
- 3 T white sugar
- 3 T brown sugar
- 1 T ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Beat the egg white and water until frothy with a whisk in a medium bowl. Add the almonds, and stir until well coated. Mix the sugars, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts. Stir the nuts until they are well coated. Spread the almonds evenly on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
Roast the almonds for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes.
Allow to cool, then store in airtight containers.
