    I don’t know about you but I love candied nuts, these little treats are so addictive and so delicious that it’s hard to keep your hands off them. Whenever we go to farmer’s market I see these little shops selling delicious looking candied nuts.

    There are walnuts, almonds, pecans, peanuts, hazelnuts etc. and they all come in so many flavors. Even if I want to buy some I end up buying nothing, simply because I get so confused with so many flavors that I finally just let it be. What an irony!

    But then I thought it would be better to make them at home. I can make one flavor at a time, munch of it happily and then move on to the next flavor.

    So I first tried these honey roasted almonds and let me tell you these are one of the easiest snacks/treats that you can make in very less time. Also the ingredients required for this recipe are almost always available in everyone’s pantry.

    It always helps when a recipe doesn’t call for a fancy ingredient, saves my trip to the grocery store, which by the way happens a lot ever since I started blogging!

    I added a pinch of cardamom powder but that it totally optional. These honey roasted almonds can be a great make ahead snack for any festive occasion like Diwali & Christmas. You can even gift them to your friends, pop them in a gift bag and tie with a beautiful ribbon.

    1. This is great! I made them without adding the sugar at the end and my kids loved them. The second time I tried them, however, I doubled the recipe and the oil is way too much. I’m not sure what the right ratio is at this point.

    2. 5 stars
      Really easy and delicious. Nice discovery. Do you have a recipe for roasted chickpeas? I’m new, so will browse around for other recipes…this here is great!
