Easy Christmas Recipe… Vanilla Almonds! Yummm!

Sometimes, well a lot of the time, Staci and I will sit on the couch on an uneventful Saturday and watch the Food Network and Cooking Channel.  Every once and a while, we will decide that there is a recipe that would really like to try.  The difficulty level cannot be too hard, and the recipe must be tasty!

vanilla almondsThis weekend, we found one of those recipes.  This one is great for gift giving.  It is extremely easy and very tasty.  It reminds me of the holidays.

This recipe is easy enough that you could even invite the kids to help out.

(Note: If you really like cinnamon, you can increase the amount. I should have done this with my batch.)
