Any suggestions on a good one? I would love to hear it!

  3. You should be very careful about the link you have from your blog to that of detrimental beauty.com. I clicked on the recipe for the candied almonds and when I scrolled down to look at another recipe I saw the blog entry she had made about her Easter holiday. She uses the "f" word more than once. When I scrolled down I saw a picture of her daughter and the quote was "I'm riding a f___ing pony". Beware!

  4. Do you use raw almonds for this recipe or the roasted kind?

  5. I have these in my crockpot right now and can't wait until they are done! I've only had them in for 2 1/2 hrs. though and mine are pretty dark; almost burnt looking. Will they will get the crusty, sugary look after they get out of the crockpot and cool? I have my setting on as low as it can go and for one of the 20 min. timings I even turned it to just "warm"

  6. When they are done they should have the crusty sugary look once they have cooled. They are soooo yummy! Let me know how they turned out when you are done!

  7. I'm sorry to say that mine did not turn out with that crusty, sugary look or taste. For the first 40 minutes, the sugar on the almonds looked pretty much the same when I put them in the crockpot. After the first hour when I would stir, I could see that the sugar was starting to melt a little. By 2 hours, it was very bubbly and getting dark so that's when I turned my crockpot down to warm. I took them out at 3 hours because the sugar and even the almond inside the sugar was tasting burnt. Maybe my crockpot just gets too hot. I will try again, but maybe in the oven instead of the crockpot. Have you ever tried it in the oven?

    1. I had the exact same problem with this recipe. Everything was burnt tasting and hard as a rock and I did not over crock it. I like the oven idea! I might look out for a recipe like that! :)

  9. Are there almonds in the photo? It looks like nothing but sugar blobs

  10. You may bake these in the oven. 325 degrees F, for 10 minutes. Make sure everything is coated really well. I lined a baking sheet with parchment. Allow to completely cool and break apart.

  11. Mine didn't turn out at all like the picture and I followed the recipe exactly. They were sticky, never did harden even after 3 days sitting out! They were also very dark while cooking and almost burnt looking while cooking on low. I don't know what I did wrong, if anything.

  12. I just made these and they turned out great, although after reading connents i decided to lay them out on cookie sheet and cook in my oven at 350° for 10 mins instead, because i had no time for errors, to busy making other goodies for Christmas meal. Wa La turned out PERFECT!!!! Yeyyyyy me!!!! :-)

  13. I doubled the almonds (2 one-pound bags) and the wet ingredients and they came out perfect. No burning,no clumping. I set the timer so that I stirred them every 20 mins. They were perfect...and addictive. I think the burning and clumping that others have experienced comes from too much sugar. Even with double the almonds, they were plenty sweet and cinnamon-y!

    1. Every 20 minutes for how long? Thank you.

    2. I think the issue is with too hot crockpots. I have two & one of them gets very hot, even on low. I made these yesterday (cutting both sugars down to one cup-cinnamon to 1 T). I don't think these are meant to get to the point of being bubbly as one commenter said...I think that would be too hot.

  14. THEY LOOK SO YUMMY!!!! THANKS! & MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

  15. Almonds and Pecans turned out great, BUT I also tried cashews and that was a DISASTER!! Does anyone know why? Do they have too high of a fat content or is it the fact that they weren't raw cashews?
