  • 3 cups whole almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  3. Stir in baking soda (mixture may foam).
  4. Pour onto a large piece of greased aluminum foil on a jellyroll pan. Use 2 wooden spoons to pull warm candy until stretched thin.
  5. Cool completely and break into pieces.
