Microwave candied almonds


    Candied almonds are quick, easy and economical to make in the microwave but they can scorch easily if left in for too long. Make sure to only add 1 to 2 tablespoons water as directed in the recipe, otherwise it will become very sticky. Enjoy as a snack or use to decorate cakes or cheesecakes.
