Candied Nuts - A FAST Recipe for Gifts

Candied Nuts - A FAST Recipe for Gifts

Okay, after all the great recipes here, thought I would give you a really fast one  people seem to love.  I have made them for years for gifts, pretty jar or container and you're set. They're really fast and easy to make.

Take 2/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup liqueur (I have used Amaretto or Grande Marnier, but there are other flavors that work well too.)

Simmer on the stove to a 'soft ball' stage, and stir in 2 to 3 cups of nuts (pecans or walnuts are good) to coat them.  Spread out on a cookie sheet to cool and dry.

You can then sort of break them up a bit if they've clumped, and store them for a while too.
