Beer & Bacon-Glazed "All-Mans" (Almonds)
Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:


These gotta-have-another-handful all-mans are sweet, salty, and sprinkled with bacon and pepper. Winner of the Almond Board of California's Snack Attack contest.



Cooking Spray

1 cup brown sugar

4 slices bacon, chopped

1/3 cup beer (any type)

1 tablespoon salt

Black pepper to taste

1 1/2 cups whole almonds

2 cups sliced almonds



Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line a rimmed baking pan with foil; spray foil with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Place brown sugar, bacon, beer, salt and pepper in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 10 minutes stirring often.  Pour in both types of almonds and stir well to coat all of the almonds. 

Spread almond mixture in an even layer on baking pan and bake for 15-18 minutes.

Remove from oven, and spread onto a sheet of aluminum foil while still warm (breaking apart any large clumps).

Allow mixture to cool to room temperature and store in a closed plastic container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

It would be nice to know how many this serves as well as a serving size/amount. Not sure how you can have Nutritional Info/breakdown when you don't have a serving size. The recipe sounds wonderful and easy and if someone doesn't have or want to use beer, water could be substituted without a problem. The flavor base would just be a bit more bland. I'm giving this recipe 3 stars only because of the missing information, which should always be listed if there is a Nutritional Breakdown.

Haven't made, but am going to make, sounds wonderful as I like Almonds and bacon. One question does the bacon get crisp???

Love this recipe. I made it last weekend for a party and it was so fun.

I live in Denver, and I guess I should have looked up the requirements for making candy at high altitude because I had problems with this recipe. The glaze was much too stiff after 10 minutes of boiling and stirring - I could hardly stir the almonds into it. Also, 1 T. salt is way too much!!!! The finished product is almost too salty to eat. If I ever make this again (doubtful), I will decrease the boiling time, and the baking time, and leave out the salt entirely.

Made these exactly as written for super bowl party. They were excellent, all loved them and easy to make. As for how many it serves, it makes 3 1/2 cups.....depends on how big of hands are grabbing it! Think would be wonderful combined w/popcorn as well. Will definitely make again.

It sounds great to me, send me some. Along with a six pack of Bud.

These were awesome! When cooled, they reminded me of a brittle! Will certainly make again and give as gifts around the holiday. They don't keep for too long -- especially if you live in an area with high humidity.

For those who have made this recipe, did you use salted or unsalted almonds?
