I've bought these nuts at flea markets & the Mall but I could never find a recipe that I liked that duplicated the flavor & consistency until I found this recipe. They are addictive!! ****If you are doubling the recipe only use 1/2-3/4 cup butter, 1 cup is too much****

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl beat egg whites until stiff, add salt, sugar & cinnamon (mix in with mixer) then fold in the nuts, set aside.
  3. In rectangular baking dish put butter on it and put in oven just until it is melted.
  4. Pour nut mixture onto pan and bake 30 minutes, ***Caution-you must turn the nuts every 10 minutes to assure proper coating of the sugar mixture.
  5. They should be well coated at the end of the baking time, it will appear that the mixture is separating at times, but it is normal. The nuts are done.
  6. Set aside to cool completely. Put back in container the nuts came inches.
  7. Enjoy!

A great recipe! I agreed with the rater who suggested that 1/2 c. butter might be too much for 1 lb. of nuts. I used 1/4 c. and think it turned out just fine. Thank you for sharing!

I LOVE this recipe. Its so good that you can't stop eating. I used 2 lbs of nuts, with 1/2 cup butter, and 3 egg whites. This worked great for me. I also used 3/4 cup dark brown sugar and it was sweet enough. Big hit as gifts for the holidays!
