"Does anyone know how to make cinnamon almonds? My granddaughter buys them like this at fairs and just loves them. Would I still coat them in egg whites and then toss in cinnamon/sugar? I tried making these once but the spice wouldn't stick. I wonder if I'd still want a little salt too. Also, would I still use blanched almonds?? Can anyone help?"

"Great, yummy, just be sure to buy blanched almonds, took me forever to blanch them myself-maybe I'm just hopeless though!"
