Quick and Easy Candied Nuts


2 ingredients and 5 minutes is all you need! Toss these sweet, crunchy bites into salads, desserts, and more.


  • 1/2 cup nuts
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  1. Place nuts and sugar in a saute pan on medium heat. Use a rubber spatula to toss the nuts frequently until sugar melts and caramelizes into a golden brown color. Remove nuts from pan and spread out onto a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Cool completely before serving.


  • You may want to toast certain varieties of nuts first and then add the sugar to caramelize. Pre-roasted nuts like peanuts (pictured) and cashews, don’t need toasting.
