Brända mandlar (literally "burnt almonds") is Swedish candied almonds.
- Preferably the almonds have to be roasted first. Put them in the oven at 180 °C for a few minutes.
- Then for the actually candying. Pour the water into a heavy-based saucepan. Then sprinkle over the sugar. Place over a low heat. Stir until the mixture thickens.
- Add the colouring. Stir in the almonds and mix so that they get a nice coating.
- Spread out the almonds on some baking paper and separate the almonds using a fork and let them cool a bit.
