These make a perfect bonfire treat, especially when served still warm. My mother always brings me these back from Belgium when she visits as she knows I love them so much. You should eat a handful of nuts and seeds every day, so this is just a tasty way of doing it. I’ll be making some more of these for my Christmas food hampers, wrapped in cellophane with a ribbon.
15mins – Prep time: 5mins – Cooking time: 10mins
- 150g pecan halves
- 150g cashews, unsalted
- 100g golden caster sugar
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- Line a large frying pan with foil (this saves on washing up!)
- Put the cinammon and the sugar in the pan and heat until it just starts to melt.
- Add the pecans and cashews and stir to ensure even distribution. Cook until nuts have browned a little.
- Remove foil with nuts from the pan and allow to cool a little. Then tip onto a plate to prevent the nuts sticking to the foil
