Five-Minute Glazed Nuts: Your Next Must-Try Recipe


  • 1 cup of raw, whole nuts of your choice
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of butter


  1. Combine the raw nuts, sugar, and butter in a large non-stick skillet. Remember, this skillet will be the stage where the magic happens!
  2. Turn your stove on medium heat and start the transformation. Stir the ingredients constantly with a heat-resistant spatula. We want to ensure the sugar melds with the butter, creating a glossy coat on each nut. This process takes around 5-7 minutes. During this time, you’ll witness a culinary wonder—the sugar will go from grainy to a fluid caramel, cloaking each nut in golden sweetness. Make sure to adjust the heat if needed, to prevent the sugar from burning.
  3. As soon as the nuts are evenly coated, transfer them immediately onto a parchment paper. This prevents them from sticking to the pan as they cool and harden. You can separate the nuts using two forks, or for a rustic touch, let them cool and break them apart with your hands later.
  4. Add a dash of flair to these glazed gems by sprinkling some cracked sea salt before they cool completely. This step isn’t just for aesthetics, it also introduces a pleasant surprise for your taste buds—a hint of saltiness amidst the sweetness.
  5. After a quick 5-7 minute wait, the nuts and their delectable coating will harden. Chop them if you want, or savor them in their whole glory.
  6. Finally, enjoy these magnificent morsels as they are or use them to elevate your salads, vegetables, popcorn, desserts, and even stir fries. Their crunchy caramelized goodness will add a delightful dimension to your dishes.


  • Choice of Nuts: Experiment with different nuts to find your favorite flavors and textures.
  • Stirring: Ensure you stir constantly while caramelizing to evenly coat the nuts and prevent burning.
  • Heat Control: Regulate the heat as per your stove to ensure perfect caramelization without burning the nuts.
  • Sea Salt: A sprinkle of sea salt enhances the flavor by contrasting the sweetness.
  • Storage: Store cooled sugared nuts in an airtight container to keep them crunchy.
