You Need These 5-Minute Candied Nuts in Your Life

September 23, 2015

I learned this quick cheat for candying nuts as a pastry cook. It’s a technique I still use frequently because it all takes place on the stovetop in under five minutes, no beaten egg white or oven required. You can use any nut or seed with this method—anything that has natural oils will work (I especially like using pistachios, peanuts, and pepitas). If you want to candy something non-oily, like rolled oats, just add a very small amount of fat to the skillet in the beginning.

Run to your pantry now, follow these simple steps, and enjoy.
