Cinnamon Sugared Mixed Nuts

February 12th, 2013 posted by Tami Rose

These sweet and spicy nuts would make a perfect hostess gift if you are invited to a Passover Seder. But not just for Passover, they would make a great gift for anyone!

What You Need

2 lbs Raw Assorted Mixed Nuts 1 1/2 C. Sugar 3-4 tsp. Cinnamon 1/4 C. Water Parchment Paper Cookie Sheet

What You Do

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lay the nuts out on a cookie sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes to lightly toast them. Allow to cool. Do not turn off the oven. In a saucepan, mix sugar, cinnamon, & water. Stir over medium heat to dissolve sugar -takes about 5 minutes. Quickly stir the nuts into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, making sure to coat all of the nuts evenly with the syrup. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the nuts out onto the sheet in a thin layer. Bake 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to make sure that the nuts are baking evenly. Watch the nuts carefully to make sure that they do not burn. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once the nuts have cooled they will become crunchy. Store in a tightly sealed container.
