Like peanuts, at the very least?

Ah, the good ‘ole days.

It wasn’t until my first plane ride at the age of 9 or 10 that I actually appreciated nuts (once I learned that honey roasted peanuts existed and tasted like nothing I’d ever known). Before then, nuts really only belonged in candy dishes on my grandparents coffee table, which I only went near when M&Ms were lurking in the bowl, for obvious reasons. #chocolateiseverything

Despite my proclamation that chocolate is all you need in life, you might actually need these too.

Nuts candied in sugar and pumpkin pie spice are bomb. #eloquent

And! For the pinteresting, crafty types out there, can we just discuss for a second how adorable these would look gifted in mason jars wrapped with twine?!

I think baked goods/food gifts are so fun because they give a personal touch to the gift! But I also really like food so while receiving a box of homemade fudge, toffee, or these nuts would legitimately bring me comfort and joy, someone else may prefer a real gift they can actually use instead of eat.

I know, it’s weird.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups raw almonds, whole
  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans, whole
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground all spice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • cinnamon sugar, for sprinkling (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine all ingredients except nuts. Stir until all sugar and spices have dissolved completely.
  2. Add in almonds and pecans, making sure all nuts are coated with the sugar mixture.
  3. Once coated, stir constantly (on med-low heat) for about 7-8 minutes, or until there is no more liquid in the pot. Remove from heat immediately (otherwise the sugars might burn).
  4. As soon as the nuts are done, pour nuts onto a sheet of parchment paper to cool (make sure they are flat and in a single layer, otherwise the nuts will stick to each other). If you want to sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to give them a 'sugared' look (as pictured), do it while the nuts are cooling so the cinnamon sugar will stick.
  5. Enjoy!

    My mom and I made these for our big family Thanksgiving this year. We only used almonds (pecans were really expensive) and it was delicious!! Everyone loved them for snacking on before dinner. It was tough to lay them out in one layer to cool; some were still touching and stuck together, but we could easily break them apart before putting in bowls around the room. I highly recommend!!
