Aboukir Almonds is a candy, a sweet (a type of "petit-four.")
To make Aboukir Almonds, whole almonds are blanched, then roasted, and set aside.
Almond paste is then coloured green or pink, and pressed into a ball or an oval. A hole is pressed into the top of each almond paste ball, and one of the roasted almonds is pushed into each hole.
Each Aboukir Almond is then dipped in a sugar syrup, which sets to form a glaze.
Almonds were produced in the region of Aboukir (Abū Qīr), Egypt, and for a time, Aboukir was the port via which they were exported to Europe.
