I find these nuts very addicting. I really love the orange/spice combination. These don't last very long in my house, so I often have to double the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium size heavy skillet. Heat over medium-high heat to boiling.
  2. Cook, stirring constantly, until all of the liquid is evaporated and nuts are coated and sugary (approximately 5 minutes).
  3. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet; break nuts apart while still warm. Let cool.

OMG! These were so easy! I did not have any oranges to zest, so I just replaced the water with good ol' oj. Even my girls, who don't like nuts, ate this "special candy" that mom made for New Year's Eve.

These are good. I used smaller walnut pieces, brown sugar, allspice in place of nutmeg because of it's intoxicant properties, plus the rest of the ingredients.
