Place all the ingredients in a pan or thick-bottomed pot and bring everything to the boil, stirring constantly. Once the mixture has reduced (until it no longer releases liquid), spread the almonds evenly on a sheet of baking paper. Do not despair if the almonds stick together. Once they have cooled for 5 minutes, they can easily be separated. Enjoy the liquorice almonds either while still warm or when they have cooled down.
