Back in December I blogged about the Bristol Christmas Market and how much I *love* the candied nuts. Rather than wait all year for more, I decided to make my own.
I used this recipe but used walnuts and pecans instead. I didn’t have enough nuts but didn’t reduce the amount of sugar so mine ended up extra sugary! They are scrummy though.
200g sugar (I used brown)
Put the nuts, sugar and water in a pan. I used a wok.
Simmer over a medium heat, stirring regularly.
The mixture will thicken up and then go grainy. Now is the time to sprinkle them with cinnamon.
Keep stirring till the nuts look like this.
Pour them out on to baking parchment and leave to cool.
