Recipe by Pie Queen

This is a much cheaper way to reproduce fairground nuts and available when the fair is out of town. Sometimes I use strawberry-orange juice, which gives it a nice flavor. Try any variation you like!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon water or 1 tablespoon juice
  • 4 ounces nuts (any)


  1. Combine the all ingredients and heat on medium.
  2. Stir continuously.
  3. When the sugar has melted and the nuts are coated, spread them on a cookie tray to dry.
  4. Try to separate the nuts from each other to keep them from drying as one lump.
