We used to stay in Barcelona quite often and the hotel where we stayed always gave little bowls of candied nuts with our drinks. I have loved these ever since and they are so simple to make. In fact, if I had realised how simple they are to make I'd have made them ages ago.
350g Almonds (skins on)
2 cups of caster sugar
splash of water
½ tsp ground cinnamon
In a heavy bottomed saucepan pour in a splash of water, cinnamon and the caster sugar. Heat until it's bubbling and all of the sugar has dissolved. Bubble for a minute and then add the nuts. Now (with a wooden spoon) stir until the sugar has crystallised around the almonds. Turn out onto a silicone mat or a non-stick baking sheet and separate into single pieces. Once cold pop into an airtight jar.
