  • 200g mixed nut, try pecans, almonds, hazlenuts, pistachios
  • 140g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp Grand Marnier


  1. Mix together all the ingredients in a pan and place over a moderate heat. Stir constantly, allowing the mix to caramelise and turn brown and making sure all the nuts are well coated.

  2. Pour the nuts onto some greaseproof paper. Don't worry if they are stuck together, as they can be separated when cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Kezz could I ask what amount of cognac and orange essence you used? thanks

Wow! Just made these nuts using cognac and a little orange essence in place of the grand marnier and they are gorgeous. Sooo easy but effective.

Brilliant recipe

I would suggest not using a creamy drink like baileys as I think the sugar and alcohol content is too low. I think the cream might inhibit caramelization too. Whisky or rum might work though?

Don't have Grand Marnier or cointreau. Would Baileys be any good?

Didn't have any Grand Marnier used Cointreau instead, so good and enjoy by all who like nuts have had to make another batch. Only downside is they are too moreish you just cannot stop going back for more.
