Caramelized nuts and berries, delicious, easy, and so good as a snack or treat over the festive period, or even for a school snack
3 cups of nuts* (I used 3 different varieties)
1 cup cranberries
±¾ cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want it to be)
±3 tablespoons butter
±¾ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1. Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat and add nuts, berries, sugar, butter, and cinnamon. Stir constantly with a rubber heatproof spatula for approximately 5 minutes (less time if your nuts are chopped as pictured) until the nuts are evenly coated in the melted sugar/butter.
2. Immediately transfer nuts to parchment paper and immediately separate using 2 forks OR let the nuts harden together and break them apart with your fingers once cooled. The nuts and coating will harden in 5-7 minutes.
Notes: *If using chopped nuts, don’t chop them too small or they will burn.
