Bavarian Sugared Almonds are a festival favorite made with sugar coated nuts with a hint of spice, easily baked in the oven.
Bavarian Sugared Almonds
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
This week’s theme for Sunday Supper is nostalgic summer recipes. I chose to do the Bavarian Sugared Almonds because they remind me of old fashioned food fairs and summer festivals, such as state and county fairs. These can also be done with pecans or any kind of nuts really.
Simple to do, while they are traditionally made with sugar in a heated pan over flame, using an egg to bind the sugars to the nut allow these to be made in the oven with an occasional stir.
You can adjust the spices as you like- I like a milder cinnamon flavor and I think the touch of nutmeg offers a hint of buttery flavor. These are also not too sweet like some I have tried. They make a great snack to keep around, or as I did- take them along as an optional dessert on a picnic.
I do hope you enjoy and browse the other Sunday Supper recipes for the week as there seem to be lots of good ones!

I make my sugared nuts with an egg white, too! These look fabulous, Sue!
It is an easy method. It also works with the spicy nut blends. I like ot better than the baked nuts recipes without egg. Those can be a touch oily.
One of my favorite snacks to make! (and eat 😀 )
And so much more economical than to pay $5 for a handful at a fair.
You’re speaking my language, crunchy, sweet, cinnamon-y nuts. Oh my! Love this recipe.
oooh – love these! And how easy they are!
The ones done in caramelized sugar are actually a touch better, but these are so much simpler to make.
I’m pretty sure I could eat that whole bowl all by myself, Sue. Those almonds look wonderful!
I gave what I had to my daughter before I did exactly that! LOL!
These look like such an addictive snack. I bet they’d be great on ice cream too.
Especially if the were hammered/cracked a bit.
Love spiced almonds! I must try these soon.
They are most popular in autumn.
A perfect party snack or TV snack!
Or snacking on the way to the camera! …Many almonds gave their lives in route to being photographed. LOL!
I absolutely love candied nuts and these look great! They would be fun on a delicious salad too. Maybe with fruit and salty cheese! YUM!!
We’ve done a lot of candied nuts on salads- almonds, walnuts and pecans. I’d nix the cinnamon on those though. Just plain.
I bet my husband would eat these almonds! (the nut doesn’t like almonds he claims)
They’s work well with pecans too, depending what you have. Bill wants me to do cashews, but I might do those up spicy. He’d been buying wasabi cashews for awhile and liked them.
These are absolutely dangerous. I’d demolish the whole dish before guests arrived. YUM!
I had to give some away to my daughter or I would have done just that.
