You wouldn’t believe how quickly a batch of these almonds disappears at my house! And they are a treat I feel better about feeding my family versus cookies, although we have plenty of those around here this time of year too – who am I kidding :)?

But the point is if you are looking for a treat that does have some nutritional value then this is a good way to go.

The Brand of Nuts I Use

For as long as I can remember I’ve been using Fisher Whole Almonds or Pecans for this recipe. Fisher is a brand I’m confident in and I love knowing their nuts are preservative free!

The only ingredient is the nuts. Just the way it should be.

I’ve been a Fisher ambassador for three years now and I hope to be for many more because it’s a product I truly love and value.

Fisher nuts also make for a super healthy snack – one my family enjoy constantly throughout the week. Sure the salted varieties of nuts are good but who needs the added sodium?

My husband loves to throw them in his protein shakes too.

The Perfect Christmas Gift!

These would make a perfect gift to give for friends or loved ones for Christmas. I’m thinking these will be my treat to make and share this year because they are so easy to make yet they are so amazingly delicious!

Once you start popping them you can’t stop. I think I ate half the jar myself today.

Another Variation on This Recipe

Another variation I love on these, which is a chai spice blend I use:

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp dried ginger
  • 3/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper

Surprisingly the flavors aren’t nearly as bold as you think they’d be and they’re so delicious.

Just try not to finish all of these off before they make it to being shared ;).

  • Beth: These were delicious and very easy – I felt so accomplish wrapping them up in cute bags! Question on the chai version – I assume you still do the same ratios of brown and white sugar, just swap out the salt/cinnamon for the chai combo, is that right? December 20, 2018 at 5:17pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Sorry for the late response! Leave the sugars and salt the same then yes just swap out the cinnamon for the chai combo amounts listed. So glad you liked these! December 31, 2018 at 4:53pm Reply

  • Sabrina: I’m wondering how much of a difference saigon cinnamon makes vs “regular” cinnamon?
    I would really like to make these for neighbor gifts and it seems like a recipe I could do without messing up too badly so I want to make sure they turn out. ;) December 18, 2018 at 1:16pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: The saigon cinnamon is a bit stronger and more rohbust and it seems to be a little sweeter but regular cinnamon will work fine too. Happy holidays! December 18, 2018 at 3:51pm Reply

  • Rebekah: I made these with the Chai spices and they turned out great! I put them in jars to give to co-workers. Thanks, Jaclyn! December 9, 2018 at 5:23pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You’re very welcome! So glad they turned out great for you Rebekah! December 9, 2018 at 5:23pm Reply

  • Danielle Baehr: Do you use raw almonds or already roasted almonds? December 2, 2018 at 12:13pm Reply
