Candied Nuts

This recipe for candied nuts is the easiest and quickest one I have found for making delicious nuts.  It just takes two ingredients - nuts and sugar.  That is it.  I found this marvelous recipe on the Our Best Bites Website.
You heat the nuts - it can be any nut or combination and the sugar together in a skillet and stir with a spatula until the sugar has melted.  Remove the nuts from the pan and let them cool on some parchment paper.    Eat when they are cool.  That is it:)  Told you this was an easy recipe.

These are great as a snack or as a topping for your salad, ice cream, yogurt, or to mix in with some trail mix.     They are delicious whichever way you chose to enjoy them.

Candied Nuts
From Our Best Bites

1/2 cup nuts
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1. Place nuts and sugar in a saute pan on medium heat. Use a rubber spatula to toss the nuts frequently until sugar melts and caramelizes into a golden brown color. Remove nuts from pan and spread out onto a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Cool completely before serving.

Notes: You may want to toast certain varieties of nuts first and then add the sugar to caramelize. Pre-roasted nuts like peanuts (pictured) and cashews, don't need toasting.
