Instant Pot is a one pot wonder that is so much more than just an electric pressure cooker. One of its awesome features is that you can saute straight in the Instant Pot.

This Saute function is great especially for users living in dorm rooms, RV, boats, on the road, traveling, or camping. Or those who simply don’t want to dirty many pots and pans.

And this Instant Pot Churro Candied Almonds Recipe highlights this Saute function beautifully. But you can also easily make this on the stovetop if you wish. 🙂

Enjoy these irresistible delicious Instant Pot Churro Candied Almonds!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat up Instant Pot: Heat up Instant Pot using Sauté function. Wait roughly 1 minute, then add ¼ cup (63ml) water, ¼ cup (60g) granulated sugar, 1 tbsp (6.5g) cinnamon powder, ½ tsp (2.5ml) vanilla extract, and ½ tsp (3g) fine salt in Instant Pot. Mix well, then let the sugar melt.
  • Make Churro Candied Almonds: Once the mixture starts to bubble, add in 2 ¼ cups (240g) almonds, ¼ tsp (0.5g) cayenne pepper and ¼ tsp (0.8g) paprika. Stir and coat almonds well with cinnamon mixture. As usual, taste & adjust seasoning accordingly. It may look runny at first. Let the almond caramelize in the churro mixture for roughly 3 - 4 minutes.
    *Pro Tip: The almonds are done when all the churro mixture are gone.
  • Serve Instant Pot Churro Candied Almonds: The almonds will stick together once they are chilled. So, spread them apart and let them cool completely in a single layer on a parchment paper in a tray. If you prefer, sprinkle some extra sugar onto the Churro Candied Almonds.

Wow these taste FANTASTIC!!!
Is there a trick that I’m missing to prevent them from sticking together? I did TRY to spread them out on parchment but was unsuccessful.

Made these low carb by using erythritol instead of the sugar. AMAZING ?

Maybe I’ve made these three times already ??? Absolutely delicious! Thank you for the great recipe; it’s definitely a hit in my home!

I do roast them at 350 for 5-8 minutes (depending on batch size) to get them extra crunchy and I can’t get enough!

So I thought I would just go ahead and make a half recipe of these and see how they came out.
I have one question, how does one have them last long enough to share?
These are SO good. My half batch is not going to make it to tomorrow
This is why you are my go to recipe site.
Thank you Amy and Jacky

Mine all stuck together, very gooey–even after being chilled overnight 🙁 Any way to save them?

Hi,

I don’t have much experience cooking and your recipe seems easy to follow. When you say cinnamon powder is that the same as “ground? Also fine salt, is that regular salt?

I love these nuts. They are delicious. I was just wondering how to store them?
Also how long they last, stored.
I want to make some for Christmas for my family.
I know everyone will, love them.
Thanks so much,
Karen K.
Keep up the good work, love your recipes.
