About this recipe:
Caramelised nuts . . . moreish and addictive. Made these since I was a nipper, one of granny's best recipe passed on. A treat for us big kids or as a food gift to friends and family. Be warned . . . YOU WILL NOT STOP at producing one batch. I divide mixture into smaller portions if giving as a gift.
10 Not enough!! ;-)
200g nuts, mixed or your favourite
150g icing sugar
4 tablespoons any liqueur
5 min › Cook:
10 min › Extra time:
1 hr cooling › Ready in:
1 hr 15 min
Mix together all of the ingredients. Cover nuts completely.
Place over a moderate heat and stir constantly, making sure all nuts are covered. Ohhh does it not smell good??
Continue stirring until icing sugar caramelises to brown. Be carefull not to burn. I do take off the heat if I feel it getting too hot. Keep stirring . . . it's worth it!
Spread caramel mixture onto a silicone baking mat or greaseproof paper. BE CAREFUL- Hot caramel leaves a nasty burn to the skin or tongue.
Wait for it! Let it cool for about 1 hour or longer, then tuck in. Tear into chunks and hide it from the children. Enjoy. Other ideas
I add other ingredients such as raisins or other dried fruits. Omit the alcohol if you wish or if you serve to the children.
