Candied Mixed Nuts
These candied mixed nuts are totally addicting and insanely delicious! They have the perfect blend of flavors and are so sweet and crisp!
I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but when it’s Christmas time I am always in the mood for some candied nuts! The way they smell, that sweet cinnamony-crunch when you bite into them… they are absolutely delicious! If you haven’t made them at home before, they are surprisingly easy to make. This recipe for candied mixed nuts is seriously the easiest, most delicious recipe ever! I have a slow cooker cinnamon almond recipe that I absolutely love, but this recipe is even quicker and easier to make. Score!
I made these nuts for some Christmas presents for friends and family, and they came out absolutely fantastic. They’re so easy to make, and so fragrant and flavorful. I love that they take just a few minutes to mix up, and are ready in under an hour. You could use any combination of nuts, but I think the cashews were my personal favorite in this mix. Feel free to use almonds, peanuts, walnuts, cashews, pistachios… whatever you have on hand. You really can’t go wrong here!
They’re perfect for any occasion, or just for snacking. These are definitely a must try!

- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 300. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. In a large bowl, combine the nuts. Whisk the egg white and water together, pour the mixture over the nuts, and toss to coat. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Toss the sugar mixture with the nuts. Spread the nuts out on the prepared baking sheet into an even layer. Bake 15 minutes, then toss the nuts and return to the oven for another 15 minutes. Let cool before breaking into clusters.

300°C or F
Can you use canned nuts?
trying to figure out the nutrition information.. do you have any idea? or maybe if you can tell me for how many servings.. thanks
Brown sugar do you mean the dark of light brown soft sugar or demerara? I have used your recipe with demerara last year and it was a huge success!! Just wondering which one is the right sugar to use
Made these last year for Christmas gifts,put a bit of cayenne in with the sugar and mix well, what a hit!!
I have done all kind of nut and they are all good
Can you use salted nuts?
Canned nuts, salted nuts, raw nuts? I’m not sure what to use or if it matters. I’d like to make this to give as Christmas gifts to friends.
How long do they keep for please?
I let them cook completely but they are soft/gummy on the bottom. What could I have messed up?
