Homemade Vanilla and Cinnamon Candied Nuts - Without Butter!
Making your own candied nuts is one of those things people never really think to do despite how easy it is. In reality, they're not only delicious and cheap to make, but make a great spontaneous gift during the holiday season. Simply follow this recipe with the nuts of your choice (pecans, walnuts, cashews, and almonds all work great), throw the finished product in a nice and decorative sealable container, and you'll have a delightfully festive snack to last you all winter long. (Or eat them all in a matter of two days like me and my sister did.) -------------------------------------------------- Vanilla and Cinnamon Candied Nuts 2 cups of mixed nuts (or any nut of your choice) 3/4 cup white sugar 1/3 cup water 2 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place nuts on cookie sheet. Toast for 10-15 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice to stir. Alternately, in a frying pan without any oil, cook nuts over medium-high heat until browned. 2. Combine sugar, water, vanilla and cinnamon in deep saucepan. Heat to a boil. 3. Add toasted nuts and stir, continuing to cook until water has evaporated and nuts are coated in a sticky syrup. This will usually take 10 minutes over medium-high heat. 4. Remove from heat and spread on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or foil to cool.
