Description

Candied nuts steeped in pumpkin spices. Perfect for a fall snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 3 cups Nuts Of Your Choice, Walnuts, Pecans, Almonds, Etc.

Preparation

In a medium sauce pan, create a simple syrup with the sugar and water. Heat over medium high heat until it begins to boil. Whisk in pumpkin pie spice.

Once the syrup has been created, stir in chopped nuts of your choice.

Turn the heat down to medium (or to whatever heat keeps the syrup boiling), and stir the nuts and syrup together until all of the moisture has evaporated. Crystals will just begin to form on the nuts and the mixture will be very thick.

Turn off the heat and turn all of the nuts out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow to cool and break apart any nuts that have stuck together.

Devour when cool. Use as topping for ice cream, cakes, or put into a dish and serve as a snack.

I made these tonight, half almonds and half cashews, and they are incredible! I think I know what I’m making everyone for holiday gifts now. The recipe is really easy, it’s very obvious when they’re done, and my house smells great, too!
