Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F … Spread nuts in a single layer over a baking sheet.
Roast for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until the nuts start to turn brown and the smell of roasting nuts fills the kitchen, but before the fire alarm goes off.
Stir together sugar, salt, and pepper together and set aside. In a skillet add the honey water and oil together and heat on medium for about 1 minute.
Add almonds to the skillet, and stir to coat well. Put them nuts in the sugar, salt mix and toss to coat. Cool.
Once they are cool you can put them in a holiday tin or a pretty dish and add a small sign for your friends and family telling them what they are getting ready to fall in love with.
