Typical german christmas candy ;)

Difficulty: easy

Time: ~25 minutes

Ingredients:
400g Almonds (whole)
300g Sugar (brown) + 1 packet vanillin essence
1 tablespoon of ground Cinnamon
2 tablespoons of Water

1-Put the sugar,vanillin essence, cinnamon and water in a big pan until the mixture boils and the sugar dissolves in the water (don’t stir!)
2-Put the almonds in and slowly stir. Heat until the water has evaporated and the sugar has caramelized and all the almonds have a shiny glaze on them (keep stirring!).
3-Place some baking paper on a big tray.
4-Remove almonds from the pan and place on the baking paper.
5 Carefully divide almonds from each other (use forks; and be careful - they're HOT!) so they don't stick together.

Mmmmmmm....sugared nuts are wonderful - we get them in the summer at an amusement park that has a stand that sells different types, but Mr. Shalom always wants the almonds because they remind him of Germany.

Is your vanillin essence dried or wet? I have vanilla extract which is a liquid and am wondering if it would taste similar if I use that.
