    I don’t know about you but I love candied nuts, these little treats are so addictive and so delicious that it’s hard to keep your hands off them. Whenever we go to farmer’s market I see these little shops selling delicious looking candied nuts.

    There are walnuts, almonds, pecans, peanuts, hazelnuts etc. and they all come in so many flavors. Even if I want to buy some I end up buying nothing, simply because I get so confused with so many flavors that I finally just let it be. What an irony!

    But then I thought it would be better to make them at home. I can make one flavor at a time, munch of it happily and then move on to the next flavor.

    So I first tried these honey roasted almonds and let me tell you these are one of the easiest snacks/treats that you can make in very less time. Also the ingredients required for this recipe are almost always available in everyone’s pantry.

    It always helps when a recipe doesn’t call for a fancy ingredient, saves my trip to the grocery store, which by the way happens a lot ever since I started blogging!

    1. This is great! I made them without adding the sugar at the end and my kids loved them. The second time I tried them, however, I doubled the recipe and the oil is way too much. I’m not sure what the right ratio is at this point.


    2. Really easy and delicious. Nice discovery. Do you have a recipe for roasted chickpeas? I’m new, so will browse around for other recipes…this here is great!
