Candied almonds are nuts (usually almonds) that have been cooked in a special way, so they end up coated in browned, crunchy sugar.[1][2] They are a typical open air fair snack in Spain, where they are called "Garrapiñadas". In Switzerland and Germany they are called "Gebrannte Mandeln".[3] They are also fairly common in Norway and Sweden, being frequently sold at Christmas markets, where they are similarly known as "brente mandler" and "brända mandlar" respectively.
