About this recipe: The first time I made this I had a small tub of raw nuts in my cabinet and didn't know what to do with them. My mom gave me the recipe, and after I made it I couldn't stop eating them. I am not a nut person, but I am totally addicted to these coated nuts. They're perfect for parties and festive occasions!


Makes: 16 servings

  • 275 g mixed nuts
  • 20 g white sugar
  • 25 g brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place the nuts on a large baking pan and bake in the preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes, taking care they do not burn. Remove from heat and let cool approximately 5 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the white sugar, brown sugar, salt, pepper, cumin, curry powder, cloves and cinnamon.
  4. In a large saucepan over medium heat, place the nuts and approximately 1/2 the sugar mixture. When the mixture begins to melt, mix in the remaining mixture. Shake the pan until all the nuts are coated, about 5 minutes. Use a spoon to separate nuts that stick together. Remove from heat and cool on a lightly greased baking sheet or wax paper. Separate the nuts to prevent sticking.
