I saw these nuts over on the blog Buns in my Oven. I included them in a goodie box for one of my Dad's clients. These nuts are so good. They smell wonderful while they are cooking. They are so simple to make and much cheaper than buying spiced nuts. They are perfect gifts. Make some today!
Sugar and Spice Candied Nuts
Recipe adapted from Buns in my Oven
- 2 pounds mixed nuts
- 2 egg whites, room temperature
- 2 Tbsp water
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites and water until frothy. Add nuts and stir to coat.
In a separate bowl, mix together the sugars, salt, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. Pour over nuts and stir to coat. Spread nuts in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and break up nuts if they are stuck together.
