Last week at BYU's football game against Utah State University, where we had seats in the fourth row, and stormed the field after we scored the winning goal in the last 11 seconds, Nick bought me Cinnamon Roasted Almonds. Those of you at these football games that think you are smelling churros when you walk around behind the bleachers in the stadium, wrong! You are actually smelling these delicious almonds that I had never tasted until last week.
Nick was appalled that I hadn't had them, so though the prices were astronomical, we splurged on 12 oz of these almonds for 7.50.
When I came home from the game, I decided I couldn't say goodbye to this delicious snack, so I found a recipe on allrecipes.com. But after reading the reviews, I tweaked the recipe by adding a half cup more brown sugar and vanilla extract instead of water. The results were fabulous. We managed to make 16 oz. for only 5 dollars, plus the fun of knowing we can make it ourselves!!
But blast it all, we were too busy scarfing them down that I forgot to take a picture, so here is the best picture of them I could find.
I have a feeling these will become a favorite Fall and Christmas treat for us!
Here is my own unique tweaked recipe:
