  1. Open package of ramen noodles and remove seasoning packet.  Crush dried noodles into smaller pieces.
  2. On medium heat, melt butter in a skillet.  Once butter is melted stir in sugar until blended.  Add ramen and almonds.  Mix with spatula for an even coating.  Heat mixture for approximately 5 minutes or until lightly browned.  You will need to stir often to achieve a nice golden coloring. 
  3. Remove from heat.  Let cool.  Once mixture has cooled you will have a delicious crunchy glaze on your mixture. 


Keep an eye out when browning almond/ramen mixture.  It goes from not quite brown to wow that is done very quickly at the end.

Make sure everything is 100% cooled before packing up for storage.  The heat will make your topping soggy if you do it too soon.
