These glossy candy-coated almonds are almost like brittle but much easier to make. With the sweet and salty combination, it's hard to stop munching these delicious nuts.

"Nice little recipe! quick and easy, yet very tasty!! I used coconut sugar, which is lower glycemic and has a bit of a brown sugar taste. I also used gourmet salt to finish it. Love it! Nice that you can adjust the sugar and salt to taste as well."
