This is the last instalment in the gorgeous easy edible holiday gifts I collaborated on with my friend Sarah as part of the “12 Days of DIY‘ series. So far we’ve shared delicious rocky road Christmas trees and Christmas cake truffles, both of which had just a handful of ingredients and were so easy to make!
Today might just be the easiest tasty treat yet with these cinnamon almonds. Get ready to be throwing these down by the handful!
These are a great quick, last-minute teacher gift, or make these for a snack on Christmas day.
Roasted Cinnamon Almonds
500g natural almonds
1/4 cup castor sugar
1 heaped teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground ginger
Step 1: Preheat oven to 120 deg celsius.
Step 2: Combine the sugar and spices in a large bowl.
Step 3: Rinse your almonds and leaved to the side. Rinsing them with water is what makes the sugar and spices stick.
Step 3: Pour the almonds into the bowl and mix until coated.
Step 4: Put coated almonds onto a lined tray and spread evenly. Place in oven.
Bake for 60 minutes, tossing the almonds every 20 minutes for even baking.
Sarah gift wrapped these by placing them in a plastic sleeve and tying with a pretty bow. She made a little tag by cutting a star shape from some lovely scrap paper and tying with twine.
These taste so delicious you’ll want to make a big batch to eat well after Christmas is over.
Nuts at Christmas are a real tradition where I live. I’d love to know what traditions you’re following this Christmas!
P.S. Thanks so much to my darling friend Sarah for making Christmas around these parts so much more fun!
