Microwave candied almonds

    4 min

    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.
