Caramelized Nuts

For snacking or topping salads...YUM! My favorites are Macadamia nuts and Almonds. (This picture is macadamia nuts)

Recipe from: Our Best Bites

2 T brown sugar

1/2 T light corn syrup

1/2 T butter

1/2 C nuts

Optional: 1/8 tsp cinnamon (SO good)

Place brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter (and cinnamon if you’re using) in a non-stick skillet on the stove top. Set heat to medium or medium-high. Stir the mixture as it comes together until it bubbles.

Add nuts and stir to coat. Continue cooking for 5-7 minutes, stirring constantly until nuts turn golden brown in color and smell toasted.

Cool completely and break apart.
