I often made candied, caramelized, praline, sugared etc. And a lot of them involve spices, temperatures etc. Till I came across a KISS recipe. (keep it simple stupid) Wow, so easy and tasty.

1/2 cup of almond slivers or cut of choice
1/4 cup of sugar (I used both white and brown, both fine)
2 tbsp of water.

Throw all in a pan, stir over medium heat. Then leave it alone. And watch. It will simmer up and down. then start to reduce. Don't touch it. When it starts to look dryish and crystallizes, (for me 5 minutes) then turn off heat. Dump onto a greased cookie sheet and comb through with a fork to a single layer and let cool. They are pretty to look at with the crystallized sugar coating. Consume.

I also add a few sprinkles of cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla in the beginning if you want a bit of a flavor other than the sugar.
