View Full Version : Delicious state fair style almonds

02-06-2008, 05:49 PM
I started getting bored with my regular 2 ounces of almonds every day so i decided to experiment. Ingredients
2 ounces almonds
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 packets splenda
1 tablespoon olive oil

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once hot throw in the almonds, stirring consistently. Add the olive oil and stir for another thirty seconds. Add cinnamon and splenda and stir until evenly coated. Take em off the heat and then eat them! Also save very well, so you can bag them up and take them with you. Simple but awesome, taste just like the sugar-laden state-fair style cinnamon toffeed almonds.

sounds good. how long shud the almonds be in the pan for before adding the olive oil?

4 minutes or so. But stir them the whole time or hey burn and get nasty.

ok thanks. would you say most of the olive oil gets burnt up and evaporates or does it stick to the almonds? just asking for counting calories and seeing if i may have to make some adjustments

I would say that only really a half tablespoon is needed so you can throw that into macros

these are tasty... i think the recipe needs a bit of salt as well though

Man, these were great. Thank you.
I tried some with splenda brown sugar, didn't turn out too well, so I added a packet of splenda, and it helped the brown sugar stick to the almonds more, they were pretty good, but will probably stick to regular sugar for convenience.

Actually, I may change that.
After letting them cool in the pan, the brownsugar mixture that didn't stick to the almonds, did stick once it cooled and hardened. They are really good.

Cooling is a really important part IMO. I tried mine after cooking this morning and was ready to throw them in the garbage. But after being in the fridge for an hour they seem fine.

Yeah, i typically just throw them on a plate and stick them in the fridge, or freezer if i'm looking to eat them asap
