Ingredients

  • 3 cups skin-on almonds
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup

Special equipment: a candy thermometer

Spread out the almonds in an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt together the butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, allspice and salt. Bring to a boil and cook, still boiling, for 1 minute, or until the mixture reaches 190 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Pour over the almonds and let cool completely while the sugar mixture sets. Serve immediately.
