For some people the holidays can be a stressful time of year. Whether you’re worried about finding that perfect gift, or you don’t have the funds to buy the gifts you want, it can be a tough time of year.
One way to make the holidays easier on yourself is to make some easy recipes. These candied cashews can serve a dual purpose. They make a great homemade gift and they make a wonderful appetizer.
Not only do candied nuts only take a few minutes to make, but they can be made ahead of time. You can even make them several days in advance.
They last for a long time. I’ve been known to have some around 2 months after making mine!
This is the fifth stovetop candied nuts recipe that I’ve made, so I often have some in my cupboard.
Recently I added some Smoky Maple Walnuts to the list. They are so easy to make that I’ve become addicted to making them.
