Candied Nuts

Candied Nuts

It’s snack time folks!

And what better way to snack then on Candied Nuts!

In under 20 minutes these nuts are warm and ready to eat.

First, let me tell ya’ about these nuts!

I like to use raw nuts because they don’t have anything extra added to them.

If you can’t find raw nuts or unsalted nuts make sure you taste the final product before adding any extra salt.

I’m using Himalayan pink salt because it’s my favorite. It gives a nice sweet and salty balance to the Candied Nuts.

Secondly, I used half evaporated milk, half water as my base liquid.
