Total time
A rich, sweet mixture of nuts candied with sugar and flavored with cinnamon and salt.
Serves: 4 cups
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup pecans
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups sugar (I used NuNaturals PreSweet Tagatose)
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon, ground
  • 2 dashes salt (optional)
  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set a side.
  2. In a large skillet add all your ingredients (but the salt). Turn the heat up to medium - high. Stir occasionally until water is evaporated, about 7 minutes. Then keep stirring until sugar gets thick and brown, about 5 minutes longer. If you smell the nuts, they are done, you don't want to burn them.
  3. Quickly pour nuts onto prepared baking sheets and with two forks, pull the nuts apart the best you can to separate them. Sprinkle with just a pinch of salt.
  4. Let them sit until completely cooled. Break apart any nuts stuck together
  5. Store in an airtight container.
