Recipe Notes

To candy almonds, place 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a small skillet. Heat until sugar begins to melt, add almonds and toss to coat. Cook until nuts are lightly toasted. At this point you can sprinkle a little cayenne pepper on them if you like a spicier taste. Pour the nuts onto a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper and allow to cool. Once hardened, break into pieces.
