I’m bringing you a short and sweet recipe today because these Candied Nuts are SO easy to make for the holidays! Bake them for your friends, family, or all for yourself. But fair warning, one bite and you won’t be able to stop eating them: they’re the ultimate gluten free sweet / savory snack!
Why I love this recipe
If you bring these Candied Nuts to your next holiday party, they’ll be gone before the party even starts! These candied nuts are SO addictive and SO delicious. They’re no fuss, quick, easy, and sure to impress.
What makes them even better is how easy they are to make. You’re basically just coating them in sugar and baking them. That’s it! Which is why this recipe is perfect for any last minute holiday gatherings or gifts!
What sort of nuts and spices should I use?
For my recipe, I use equal parts cashews, almonds, and pecans but feel free to use any nut you like. I also think it would be a fun idea to scoop some into gift bags along with toffee bits or chocolate chips. Uhh talk about best gift ever.
I’ve used cinnamon in this recipe as it works so well with almost every nut, and a hint of nutmeg to add a little bit of festive flavor, but feel free to play around with your own combinations. A touch of pumpkin spice might be fun if you’re making them for Thanksgiving!
They’ll last up to week at room temp kept in an air tight container.
Your oven may run too hot, or you can try taking the nuts out a bit earlier. Keep an eye on them as they bake very quickly!
