Keto Spiced Candied Almonds
This week we bring you the 2nd recipe in our series of 4 holiday Keto and Low Carb recipes. This week we present a Keto Spiced Candied Almonds. We found a base recipe on Pinterest but that really didn’t produce the taste and quality we were looking for – something was missing!
We wanted to figure out how to recreate those deliciously sweet spiced almonds that you can often purchase at amusement parks, or the County Fair. WARNING! These are very addictive and it will be easy to over indulge. These spiced almonds will be great for your holiday gatherings or as special holiday gifts.
