Prep Time

Cook Time

5 minutes

Yield

2 Cups

Ingredients

1/2 cup or 110 g unsalted butter
1 cup or 200 g light brown sugar
1/3 cup or 110 g honey
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 cups or 290 g nuts of your choice

Instructions

1. In a saucepan, add the butter, honey, brown sugar, and heavy cream, and stir over medium heat. Allow the mixture to gently simmer for about 1 minute, then add the nuts and combine.

Bring the mixture back to a gentle boil and wait about 1 - 2 minutes until you see the mixture go a golden color. (Don't leave it unattended because it might burn).

Then turn the heat right down and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

NOTE: Please take care because this caramel is very HOT so do not attempt to taste it or touch it with your bare hands!

2. Remove from the heat and pick out the nuts using a spoon and lay them apart on a piece of parchment paper.

Try to drain the nuts a little before you place them on the parchment by letting them drip when you spoon them out of the pan.

Allow to completely cool and dry before storing in an air-tight container, or using for decorating a cake etc.

You may have a tiny bit of caramel sauce leftover in the pan. Pour it over some ice cream or simply discard!

If you want to really harden the caramel, after draining, pop them on a parchment-lined baking tray and bake at 220C or 450 F for around 10 minutes then allow to completely cool. Once cooled, they will be hard.

  1. I am looking for a recipe that my mom used to make. The glaze was carmel colored and a hard crack coating on the nuts. They did look like your picture. Are they crispy crunchy on the outside??
