Caramelized Almonds

2 cups whole almonds
2 tablespoons butter
12 tablespoons raw sugar

Place sugar and butter into a nonstick skillet and cook on medium heat until the sugar is caramelized, stirring frequently. Then add nuts and coat evenly.

Once the almonds are well coated with the caramelized sugar, place them in a single layer on a greased baking sheet or wax paper and allow them to cool. You can also make this recipe with peanuts, pecans or cashews in place of the almonds.

Once cooled break into small pieces and place in candy dishes and serve this homemade, easy treat to your guests, or store caramelized nuts in air-tight container! Enjoy!
