Roasted Cinnamon Almonds
I found this recipe on Pinterest (where else?) and boy oh boy is it delicious!!! Super duper easy to make and so yummy. Plus it kind of feels like somewhat of a healthy snack. Mmmm. They are good to make at night because they taste sooo good the next day after they cool down. Crunchy and perfect!!
You can find the recipe here! Believe me, you won't be disappointed with this one!
The second recipe is my all time easy favorite Christmas Caramels. Thanks to my dear friend Kristen Walton who shared with me this recipe.
Now I know you're thinking....caramels? Candy thermometer? Craziness! But wait!! There is no candy thermometer involved. It's simply that easy!!
2 cubes butter - softened
1 cup brown sugar - not packed
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Combine all ingredients in glass (or microwavable) bowl until mixture is smooth.
Cook in microwave 14 min at highest temp.
Remove and beat with mixer 2 minutes.
Pour into 9 x 13 pan that has parchment paper in bottom and sides buttered.
Freeze for about 15-25 minutes.
Take out of pan and cut with pizza cutter into strips, then into pieces. Wrap in wax paper.
Delicious and easy!!! These make a quite a lot, nice for sharing with co-workers, neighbors, or just keeping them around for the family on game / movie night!!
