Candied Nuts


  • 1 lb (450g) of Pecans (or cashews, walnuts, pistachios, almonds)
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) butter
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) honey
  • 1 tbsp (11 g) of brown sugar
  • ½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
  • ¼ tsp (1.25 ml) cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp (1.25 ml) cayenne pepper

Place nuts in a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a microwavable bowl, combine all other ingredients and microwave for 30 seconds until everything is melted. Stir with a fork and pour over nuts. Mix nuts to coat well. Then transfer nuts to a baking sheet and arrange them into a single layer. Bake at 350F (175C) for 10 minutes. Transfer to serving bowl.

NOTE: These can be made ahead of time and stored at room temp. Then pop in oven at 300F (150C) for 5 minutes to re-warm!
