A twist on the traditional candied nuts. Use on top cakes, in salads or just as a munchy.
- In a medium to small-sized skillet, melt butter with the brown sugar.
- Add 3/4 cup of toasted and chopped hazelnuts and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring fairly constantly, until the sugar caramelizes around the nuts are a rich golden-brown. Careful not to burn.
- Remove to waxed paper or aluminum foil and separate the nuts so they won’t stick together when they are cooled. Can be prepared several days ahead and stored in a covered container.
