Sugar and Spice Candied Nuts – Updated!

Here’s another quick, easy, and totally delicious idea for your holiday table.  They’re great for keeping on hand when unexpected guests may stop by.  They’re also great for just keeping on hand to enjoy by yourself =)

A word of warning: you may find yourself eating these candied nuts until you are sick.  It just can’t be helped.Sugar and Spice Candied Nuts | A Nerd Cooks

I blogged about these nuts a couple of years ago; My original post on candied nuts can be found here.

You’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • generous pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1 lb unsalted nut of choice

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together the sugars, salt, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon.

In a large bowl, whisk the egg white and water until the egg white is frothy, but not stiff.  Add the nuts and toss to coat.

Add the spices to the nuts and toss it all around until everything is evenly coated in the sugar and spices.

Bake for 30 minutes, stopping to toss everything around at the 15 minute mark.  Remove the nuts from the oven and break them apart as they cool.  Try to not eat the entire thing in one sitting.

  1. Ah how delicious! I had some Sweet Chilli and Lime Cashews yesterday at a market nearby and couldn’t get enough of them! I love this recipe, the pinch of cayenne pepper would be a delicious kick of spice!
