Making one of my favourites today, candied almonds! They’re a lovely snack and taste so amazing; I’ve actually wanted to make them since I got something similar in a Graze box (in case you haven’t heard of them they deliver yummy snacks to your house or office) so I thought I’d give them a try today, and they actually taste pretty similar to the proper stuff :)
As you know I’ve been very busy recently having just started an intense journalism training course, so I’ve been trying to experiment a little more with very quick desserts and snacks. This one takes barely any time, and it needs hardly any looking after – I was manically running around the house trying to sort things out whilst this was merrily cooking away!
Thankfully I’m nice and curled up in bed now, I owe all of my calm feelings now to those “chill out for meditation” playlists on YouTube. Let’s see if my zen mood will last on the tube to work tomorrow… A man sneezed on me on the Victoria line this morning and I thought I was going to sock him in the nose!
Anyway, hope you like the recipe and I’ll see you next week :)
