Mocha Roasted Almonds

These yummy snacks make great party fare, awesome little treats for gift baskets, and truly yummy snacks to keep in the office drawer.  I imagine you could easily swap any nuts for almonds if you liked something else better.

Mocha Roasted Almonds

  • 4 Cups Whole Almonds
  • 2 Egg Whites, Beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Coffee Liqueur or Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Instant Espresso Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

Mix together brown sugar, cocoa powder, instant espresso, and salt.  Beat together the egg whites and coffee liqueur until frothy.  Pour the egg white mixture over the almonds and toss together, add the spice mixture and stir until the nuts are coated.

Spread onto a parchment paper / silicone sheet lined baking sheet.  Bake for 45 minutes giving the nuts a stir every 10 to 15 minutes.  Allow to cool before storing in an airtight container.
