Candied Nuts

Hey guys,  I made these to give as christmas gifts and they are so easy and relatively cheap to make.  So… Win win!  I used almonds but you could use any nut that you prefer, most recipes for candied nuts will have you using eggs whites as a binding agent, I choose not to so they have a longer shelf life.  Make these ASAP!!




1 pound nuts

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup and 1 ½ tbsp water

1 ½ tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp cinnamon

⅛ tsp ginger



  1. Mix together water, oil, and baking powder.  

  2. Add spices and sugar and mix.

  3. Add nuts and coat evenly.

  4. Spread evenly on lined baking sheet cook at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, half way through cooking mix nuts

  5. Eat, but try not to eat them all!


Enjoy your holiday!
