How to Make Candied Nuts with a sugar syrup

Roast nuts for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Remove the nuts from the oven and let them cool a little.

Begin your sugar syrup using a 1:2 ratio of water to sugar for making candied nuts.

The sugar syrup can have many different spices added to it. You can add any spices that you like at this point.

What spices can you add to candied nuts

  • vanilla extract
  • vanilla bean paste
  • cinnamon
  • sea salt
  • brown sugar
  • maple syrup
  • butter

Candied nuts with maple syrup added gives the nuts a hint of maple flavor. Maple flavor goes well with cinnamon and brown sugar.

After you’ve added your spices to your sugar syrup, mix well and then add your nuts.

Candied nuts are coated in this sugar syrup mixture and then cooked over medium heat in a saucepan. Typically the nuts should be cooking in the sugar syrup for at least 5-10 minutes.

Pour the candied nuts onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Let the candied nuts cool and then they’re ready to eat.

Making the candied nuts recipe with no eggs will make your nuts stand out more. You’ll be able to see the nut colors much more vividly than using a recipe with egg whites.

How to Make Candied Nuts with egg whites

To make your candied nuts using egg whites, beat 1-2 egg whites on high until stiff peaks form. It should take about 5 minutes until the peaks are stiff enough. Make sure to keep checking on them after 3-4 minutes. If your peaks “fall” they are only soft peaks. Keep mixing them until the peaks don’t move when you remove the beaters from the egg whites.

Add your spices to your egg whites and mix well.

Coat the nuts in the egg white and spice mixture.

Roast the nuts for 25-45 minutes at 300 degrees F until toasted to your liking. Stir the nuts every 10-15 minutes to make sure they are fully roasted on each side.

Remove the nuts from the oven and let them cool to room temperature.

Using egg whites for candied nuts gives the nuts more of a white look to them. Make sure this is the look you want before making your recipe with egg whites.

How long are candied nuts good for

Candied nuts are good for up to 2 weeks at room temperature in an airtight container.

What is chocolate ganache

Chocolate ganache is type of icing that can be used in many ways including:

  • fill macarons
  • glaze cakes or cupcakes
  • dip fruit in
  • éclair topping
  • filling for crepes
  • topping for brownies
  • topping for ice cream
  • topping for cheesecake

Chocolate ganache is made by heating warm heavy cream to room temperature chocolate.

The warm heavy cream gently melts the chocolate. This gives the chocolate ganache a rich flavoring.

Chocolate ganache can be made with several different ratios depending on what the chocolate ganache is used for.

Some chocolate ganache recipes have butter added at the end to create another layer of richness to the chocolate ganache, and make the texture very smooth and shiny.

This is the type of chocolate ganache that will be used for filling macarons.

How is ganache different from frosting?

Ganache is different from frosting because ganache is made with warm heavy cream that melts chocolate. Butter is added at the end of ganache to create more of a smooth and shiny look to it.

Frosting is made with a base of creamed butter and icing sugar. Their compositions are completely different in how they are made, and what they are made of.

The texture of the two are a little different as well. Ganache is much more of a smooth texture, whereas frosting has a little bit of graininess to it.

How to flavor chocolate ganache for macarons

You can add many different extracts or spices to add flavors to chocolate ganache.

  • peppermint extract (1/4 tsp)
  • almond extract (1/4 tsp)
  • vanilla extract (1/4 tsp)
  • amaretto extract (1/4 tsp)
  • cinnamon (pinch)
  • vanilla extract (1/4 tsp)
  • coconut extract (1/4 tsp)
  • hazelnut extract (1/4 tsp)
  • orange extract (1/4)
  • raspberry extract (1/4 tsp)

How to add alcoholic flavor to macarons

You can add the following alcoholic flavors to your macaron fillings by adding only 1/4-1/2 tsp of alcohol to either buttercream frosting or ganache.

You can add more as needed. Be sure to taste test as you go.

Ganache can be a bit finicky and become too thin if you add too much alcohol to it. Only add the minimum amount if making ganache and then see if the consistency will be ok when piping. Ganache can become too thin and run over the sides of the macarons if you add too much alcohol.

  • spiced rum (1/4-1/2 tsp)
  • baileys (1/4-1/2 tsp)
  • brandy (1/4-1/2 tsp)

Typically coleslaw for tacos has a vinegar-lime base for the coleslaw making the taco tangy and very flavorful. You can use this cilantro lime coleslaw with no mayo on beef tacos, vegetarian tacos, or shrimp tacos.

Cilantro Lime Coleslaw Recipe No Mayo

The cabbage used in the coleslaw recipe can be found in one of the premade coleslaws that you’ll find in a bag in the grocery store. The coleslaw should already have sliced carrots in the coleslaw so you won’t need to add any. I find that purchasing this coleslaw is much cheaper and easier than cutting up multiple cabbage and having most of it go to waste. The coleslaw in a bag should last 3-4 days in the fridge, so that will give you enough time to use most of it up.

The best use of this Mexican slaw is for adding it to shrimp tacos. The coleslaw with cilantro lime vinaigrette goes nicely with the shrimp giving it a hint of lime flavor. It’s not too overpowering and leaves you with a fresh taste in your mouth. You can also try this citrus slaw for on top of fish tacos! The

Why does citrus go well with fish?

Fish is a salty food, and once cooked, it’s skin forms a caramelizing flavor creating a sweet taste. When you add in citrus – sour flavor, you’re getting a combination of salt, sweet and sour all at once. Citrus goes well with fish because it compliments the other flavorings and balances them out.

You can make this quick lime and cilantro slaw in only 5 minutes. Prepare it just before you’re ready to serve your tacos so your coleslaw doesn’t get soggy. I recommend serving it with some sort of salsa – try our watermelon and pineapple salsa if you’re up for a challenge!

What is the difference between a pancake and a crepe?

A pancake using leavening agents to make it puff up. Pancakes are quite a dense food to eat, therefore they are fairly filling. Crepes do not use any leavening agents. The batter is very thin, unlike pancake batter which is a thick batter. Crepes are thin after they are cooked, making them not very filling. They are not a very sweet food, so you can top them with just about anything. There are savory or sweet crepes, whereas for pancakes there are only sweet toppings for them.

What do crepes taste like?
