Candied Nuts

dsc_0134

This is a recipe we make almost every year around Christmas. These are great to have around for snacking or to give out as gifts. They aren’t very healthy but they are delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 lbs nuts (whole almonds, pecan or walnut halves)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 250 F. Grease one large baking sheet or 2 smaller baking sheets (I use a silpat liner for easy cleanup)
  • In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, water, and vanilla extract until frothy. Add nuts to the egg white mix and stir to coat.
  • In a small bowl mix together sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Pour over the nuts and stir to coat.
  • Spread nuts onto the prepared baking sheet(s). Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes.
