Gebrannte Mandeln als weihnachtliches Mitbringsel

Roasted almonds as a Christmas gift

There is hardly anyone who does not like roasted almonds and the seductive scent of this sweet delicacy makes the heart of every sweet tooth beat faster. However, very few people know that it does not require great talent to do it yourself. And so you can conjure up a nice, homemade souvenir in no time at all.

You need:

  • A glass jar (500 ml)
  • 200 grams of almonds
  • 100 grams of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

That's how it's done:

Put all ingredients in a pan. Add an additional 5 tablespoons of water. Boil everything until the water has completely evaporated. Stir continuously. Then continue tossing the almonds in the pan until the sugar begins to caramelize. Remove from the heat, place the almonds on a piece of baking paper and leave to cool.

It is best to fill the finished almonds in a nice glass container and decorate your souvenir with a handwritten note by fastening it with natural yarn.
