Cinnamon Roasted Almonds from Barbara Bakes

Hello all! While I’m enjoying the newest (and teeniest) member of our family, I have asked some of my very favorite blogging friends to share some of their absolute favorite posts with you. Thanks so much for reading and enjoy! Today’s post comes from Barbara. She’s a baking and kitchen genius who also happens to run, not one, but two blogs! I had the honor of meeting Barbara almost a year ago and I’ve considered her a friend ever since. She’s just as sweet as her baking. I know you all are going to love her too!


I’m Barbara and you’ll find me baking up sweet treats and family meals on Barbara Bakes and pressure cooking quick, delicious meals and treats on Pressure Cooking Today.

Thanks Melissa for inviting me to share one of my favorite holiday baking recipes.  Last year I made batch after batch of Candied Cinnamon Roasted Almonds.  They’re an irresistible snack to set out for guests, or make perfect gifts to give to your neighbors and friends for the holidays.


Every year when the weather turns cold, kiosks set up in the mall selling freshly made candied cinnamon roasted almonds. The smell from the crunchy, sweet cinnamon glazed almonds fills the entire mall and I can’t resist taking a sample or two as I pass by.

The candied nuts are expensive to buy at the mall, but pretty cheap and easy to make at home, especially if you buy the huge bags of almonds at the warehouse store.  Just be sure to make plenty because even at home I can’t resist taking one or two (or a handful) as I pass by the bowl.

Visit me at Barbara Bakes for the Candied Cinnamon Roasted Almonds recipe and other great holiday baking recipes.

You’ll love these easy-to-make, addicting, sweet, crunchy, candy coated cinnamon roasted almonds just like you get at the mall.
