Pumpkin Spice Almonds~

Well, it's that time of year!!! Pumpkin Spice everything is back.  I do have to say however, some people/companies have taken it a bit tooooo far with some pretty unappetizing products.

I did stumble upon this recipe on Pinterest, and seeing how our household loves sugared pecans at Christmas time, I knew I had to give it a try.

Warning...they are extremely addictive!  You won't be able to eat just one, so be sure to make a double batch ;-)

Pumpkin Spice Almonds



Ingredients

Pumpkin Spice

3 TBS cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cloves

Pumpkin Spice Almonds

1/4 C water
1/2 C sugar
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice (recipe above-you'll have extra, which will be a good thing because your gonna need it when someone eats the last one and you are craving them, just saying)
1 C whole almonds

Instructions

Pumpkin Spice
1. Combine ingredients in a small bowl.

Pumpkin Spice Almonds
1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.
2. In a heavy saucepan, combine water, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice.
3. Over medium heat bring to a full boil.
4. Add the almonds.
5. Stir until the liquid turns into a syrup coating on the almonds (this happens pretty fast).
6. Pour the almonds onto the baking sheet.
7. Separate the almonds with a fork.
8. Allow to cool.
9. Before serving to the family hide a stash for yourself (you'll can thank me later).

These actually look delicious! I agree though...some companies have taken the whole pumpkin spice craze way too far. :)
