Spekulaas Spiced Mixed Nuts
St Nicholas Spekulaas
1 egg white, whisked until frothy
25g brown sugar or 2 tbsp honey
500g nuts – a mixture of cashews, almonds, pistachios, walnuts and macadamia nuts works well
How to Cook
1. Preheat the oven to 160C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg white until thick and foamy. Add in all the rest of the ingredients, except for the nuts and combine well. Then fold in the nuts and stir until well coated with the spiced mixture.
3. Spread coated mixed nuts over baking paper and place into pre-heated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then take the baking tray out of the oven and give everything a good stir with a wooden spoon, (they’re quite sticky at this stage). Return to the oven and continue baking until they are dried out, golden brown and candied. This will take up to 1 hour, depending on how large your tray is.
4. Cool on baking paper, they’ll crisp up as they do so. Your mixed nuts last well for weeks if you keep them airtight.
