Ingredients

  1. Check 2cups unsalted mixed raw nuts (such as almonds, cashews, pecans, and walnuts)
  2. Check 3/4cup granulated sugar
  3. Check 1/2teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Spread the nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing once, until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Once the baking sheet is cool, line with parchment.
  2. In a large skillet, combine the sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons water. Simmer, swirling the pan occasionally (do not stir as it will crystallize the caramel), until the liquid is amber colored, 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the nuts, then spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet, separating the nuts as much as possible. Let cool. Break up any large clusters before serving.
