Homemade sugared almond, the recipe

Ingredients for about 50 sugared almonds

  • 100g almond paste
  • 50g almonds
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 1 albume
  • 2 drops of lemon


Pour a pinch of icing sugar over the almond paste and roll out everything with a rolling pin. Make some circles of pasta in the center of which you will place a skinned almond. Wrap the pasta around the almond and give it the shape of a sugared almond. Help us with the palm of your hand to give it the right shape then level everything to obtain a smooth surface. Repeat the procedure for each almond.

In a bowl, with the help of electric whips, work the icing sugar with the egg white and the two drops of lemon until a solid glaze is obtained. At this point, dip each sugared almond into the icing and place them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.

Bake the sugared almonds for 10 minutes at 60 ° C. Once cooked, let them cool out of the oven for half a day; this will allow the confetti to harden.

Your confetti are ready to be tasted!
