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!
