Ingredients

    Almonds, 2 cup, whole
    Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, 3 tsp
    Pancake Syrup - Sunny Acres Sugar Free, 3 tbsp
    Salt, 1 tsp
    Pepper, red or cayenne, 1 tsp
    Cinnamon, ground, .25 tsp
    Ghirardelli Cocoa, 1.5 tbsp

Directions

Mix the syrup, brown sugar, salt, cayenne, cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over a medium heat.

Add almonds and cook for 3 minutes stirring constantly.

Pour onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and make sure they are only single layer. USE PARCHMENT, or else you will never recover your cookie sheet... this is some sticky stuff.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 325 (or until the syrup has become dark brown) stirring occasionally to prevent burning.

Separate nuts on cookie sheet and let them cool.

Once cool, place nuts in a resealable bag with cocoa powder. Shake to coat.
