Reviews for Iced Almonds
"This has been my husband's favorite for 30 years. The only change I make is to blanch the almonds. Delicious!"
"These are really good. Be patient, and stir constantly. The sugar takes a while to liquefy, but once it does, it goes really fast so be ready."
"Great easy recipe! A couple of tips, don't double and cashews work great!"
"Loved them!! Easy to make, and anyone that has tasted them, love them!! I added a little more butter than what was called for."
