Sugar & Spice Candied Nuts

  • 2 pounds mixed nuts
  • 2 egg whites, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp cinnamon



Preheat oven to 300 degrees.


In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites and water until frothy. Add nuts and stir to coat.


In a separate bowl, mix together the sugars, salt, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. Pour over nuts and stir to coat. Spread nuts in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet.


Bake for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and break up nuts if they are stuck together.
