Christmas Almonds

I can’t believe it’s already December 5th.  I hope you’re enjoying each day of this Christmas season.

Here’s a favorite recipe of mine.  I got it from my Mom and I make it nearly every year at this time.  If you love almonds these will be addicting. These are perfect for gifts, as well.  I hope you enjoy.
