Maple Glazed Nuts

Oh my, these ticked all the boxes – the main two being Easy & Delicious!

I only made half the quantity of the original recipe (restraint isn’t one of DH or the DD’s strengths) and that was a perfect amount for an afternoon snack for the four of us.

Unsurprisingly, everyone loved them!   As DD2 is not-quite-two I chopped up half the nuts into smaller pieces & watched her like a hawk (she has a tendancy to eat like a squirrel – she stuffs loads of food into her cheeks & forgets to swallow!)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of nuts (I used walnut halves, pecans almonds and cashews)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat a dry frying pan on a medium-high heat.
  2. Line a baking tray with some non-stick baking paper.
  3. Add the nuts and dry fry for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
  4. Add the maple syrup and continue stirring for about 3 minutes, until the nuts are fully coated and the syrup has caramelised and become very sticky.
  5. Space out the nuts on the piece of non stick baking paper. As they cool, the nuts will firm up, become shiny, and not sticky at all.
  6. If you have any left over (Ha!) you can apparently store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

  3. These look amazing and so easy to make! They would be nice to give as a gift and a lot healthier than giving cookies. I can see them in a jar wrapped with a pretty bow. Thanks for sharing! Celeste:)
