Ras el Hanout Spiced Nuts

These delicious candied nuts get their depth of flavor & complexity from Ras el Hanout, a fragrant blend of top shelf spices used as a general purpose seasoning in many North African countries.

½ cup Granulated Sugar
¼ Brown Sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
¼ cup Water
1 tbsp Ras el Hanout
1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 cup shelled Whole Nuts (any will do)


  1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the nuts and butter in a thick bottomed pan (the mixture’s consistency should resemble wet sand).
  2. Heat the pan over medium-high heat until a syrup is formed & it starts to brown.
  3. Add the nuts and the butter. Continue to cook until the nuts have toasted and are evenly coated with the caramel.
  4. Pour the pot’s contents onto a non-stick surface (we recommend a silicone baking mat) to cool before serving.
