How To Make caramel nut crunch

  • 1
    Roast the nuts first to bring out the flavor. In a pan, cook over medium heat until they start to give off a scent.
  • 2
    Place the sugar in a nonstick pan and cook over high heat until it starts to melt. If necessary, add a bit of water to help.
  • 3
    Turn the heat down to medium low and continue to cook until the sugar turns a deep rich brown color. Add all the nuts and mix well. Cook for a few minutes, making sure the nuts are fully coated.
  • 4
    Remove from heat and quickly spread the hot mixture onto a cookie mat or an oiled sheet of foil to the desired thickness (I liked it about 1/2 an inch thick) Let cool for half an hour before breaking into smaller pieces.

    Different sugars can be used the cheapest regular white sugar, brown sugar, to name a few. You can experiment with them.
