For Candied Nuts:

  • Melt butter in a pan or skillet over medium heat and add nuts and sugar.
  • Stirring constantly, cook until sugar is completely dissolved and begins to caramelize. Make sure all the nuts are thoroughly coated.
  • Once sugar is a dark amber color, remove nuts from heat and immediately spread out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Set aside and let cool.
