We miss the Christmas Markets this year. We miss meeting friends there, the smell or candied Almonds and the Glühwein (German mulled wine). This year we are bringing some Christmas market feeling for Home. This weekend I am working on few new recipes for Christmas Market favourites and I hope you will enjoy them too.

This German homemade candied almonds are typical for the Christmas Markets but also traditional for Oktoberfest. They are cinnamon and vanilla scented, sweet and crunchy.

this Recipe is very easy and quick and you can use any other nuts that you have. It tastes great with hazelnuts or with a raw nuts mix.

Instructions
  1. Prepare a large tray and cover with backing paper. This is where you will later put the candied nuts to cool down.
  2. In a non-stick pan add the raw sugar, cinnamon and vanilla sugar (or extract) and mix all. Add the water and turn the stove on high heat. Do not stir and wait until the mixture boils.
  3. Add the almonds and start to stir well. Mix the almonds energetic and without taking breaks until the water evaporates.
  4. Turn the heat down to medium and continue to stir the nuts until the sugar start melting. The almonds will start to become shiny.
  5. Turn the heat off and put the almonds on the tray. Using two forks separate the almonds, so they do not stick in bunches and let them cool down.
Recipe Notes

I used Demerara Raw Sugar and the result was great. Not any type of raw or brown sugar caramelises well. If you are not sure about the brown or raw sugar you have, I suggest that you mix brown and white sugar for best result.
