Caramel nuts 5 minutes

Preparing a quick and easy recipe for Caramel Nuts in just 5 minutes can be achieved by using a microwave method. Here’s a simple recipe to follow:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup nuts of your choice (e.g., peanuts, almonds, cashews, walnuts)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

  • Prepare a microwave-safe bowl and add the nuts to it. You can use one type of nut or a mix of your favorites.
  • In a separate microwave-safe bowl, combine the granulated sugar and water. Stir well to make sure all the sugar is moistened.

  • Place the bowl with the sugar-water mixture in the microwave and cook on high for about 1-2 minutes until the sugar is fully dissolved. The time may vary depending on your microwave’s power.
  • Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave using oven mitts or a towel (it will be hot).
  • Add the butter, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the sugar-water mixture. Stir well to combine everything into a smooth caramel sauce.
  • Immediately pour the hot caramel sauce over the nuts in the other bowl. Use a spatula or spoon to quickly coat all the nuts with the caramel.
  • Spread the caramel-coated nuts on a parchment paper-lined tray or plate, separating them as much as possible.

  • Let the caramel nuts cool and set for a few minutes. The caramel will harden, creating a delicious crunchy coating on the nuts.
  • Once completely cooled and set, transfer the caramel nuts into an airtight container for storage.

Enjoy your homemade Caramel Nuts as a delightful snack or gift them to friends and family. Remember, the caramel will be very hot, so be careful when handling it during the process. Always use microwave-safe bowls and oven mitts to avoid burns.
