Candied Almonds

These candied almonds are quite addictive. They would make a perfect homemade Christmas gift to coworkers or loved ones. Pour some in a glass jar or decorative tin and you have an easy gift that anyone would be happy to receive. My favorite part of making them is how wonderful they make your house smell.
