Candied Nuts

Source: smittenkitchen.com


  • 1/3 cup dark-brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pound mixed nuts
  • 1 egg white , room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix sugars, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon, making sure there are no lumps; set aside. Beat egg white and water until frothy but not stiff. Add walnuts, and stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle nuts with sugar mixture, and toss until evenly coated. Spread sugared nuts in a single layer on a cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven, and separate nuts as they cool. When completely cool, pour the nuts into a bowl, breaking up any that stick together.

  1. These sound fabulous! In fact, I'm almost afraid to make them because I'm pretty sure I could eat rather a lot of them! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

    I'm originally from Ontario too - although I've lived in England for over 20 years now. I clicked over to your home page and I must say that photo of your little one is just lovely!!

  2. Congratulations on your precious baby girl!!! I just "found" your blog and am loving it. Another Canadian, I'm so excited, lol! I'm with April, I'm afraid to make those nuts because I'll eat them all myself! Treasure these moments, they grow so fast. My children are 20 and 25 now. Yikes!!! How did that happen!
