Make Spicy Super Bowl Treat

It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday, and we’re going nuts! One of the must-have items on our party menu is a big bowlful of homemade spicy almonds. They’re so delicious we can’t help but to eat them by the handful, but watch out! They sure do pack a punch.

Start by whisking together two egg whites, 2 tsp. of water and 2-4 tbsp. of your favorite hot sauce. We love  using sriracha for this recipe, but Tabasco, Crystal or even a spicy barbecue sauce works great. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1 cup of light brown sugar and a generous pinch of’s deliciously smokey BBQ seasoning.

Toss 2 lbs. of whole roasted almonds in the hot sauce mixture, then pour the sugar mixture into the bowl. Stir the almonds until they’re covered in a thick, syrupy coating.

Spread the coated almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet covered in wax paper. Bake the almonds at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour, or until they’re nice and toasty. Stir them every 15 to 20 minutes to keep them from burning. Allow the spicy almonds to cool, then serve.

Enjoy this delicious snack, and have a safe Super Bowl Sunday! May the best team win! 🙂
