The flavors came together perfectly in this sundae, with salted caramel pulling everything together. I used vanilla ice cream as the base to keep it a blank slate, but coffee-flavored ice cream would also be delicious.
If you're looking for a fabulously easy, but impressive dessert for a summer party, picnic, or potluck, this is perfect. Ice cream is one of the few things the whole family can agree on!
Ingredients for Roasted Cinnamon Sugar Almonds:
butter or cooking spray, to grease the pan
1 large egg white
1 Tbsp water
2 cup whole almonds
½ cup (3oz) sugar
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
For the Roasted Cinnamon Sugar Almonds, preheat the oven to 300F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the paper with butter or cooking spray.
Beat the egg white and water until frothy, then fold in the almonds. Sprinkle on the sugar, cinnamon, and salt, and gently toss to coat.
Spread the almonds out onto the prepared baking sheet and bake until crisp and golden in places, about 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
Let the nuts cool before serving, and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.
