Swedish Nuts Mix
Christmas is a time for giving, not only receiving, and heartfelt homemade gifts are always appreciated. It doesn’t have to be something elaborate and time-consuming. A simple recipe like these Swedish Nuts will have everyone appreciating and munching with joy. We love making and giving homemade presents for the holidays, and now you can too with this delicious recipe.
These nuts are scrumptious once cooled slightly and still warm, but as they cool further, they get crispier. They are made with a meringue base that gives you the crispy exterior to the roasted nuts.
Wrap these Swedish Nuts up in little packages using tins, jars, cello bags, mugs, or glasses. Everyone will love them. Make an extra batch for yourself to serve, they will disappear by the handful!
1/2 pound blanched almonds (we left the skins on!) (about 2 cups)
1/2 pound pecan halves (about 2 cups)
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350º F and toast nuts until just fragrant; they will cook a lot longer later in the oven. Sprinkle nuts slightly with salt and let cool. Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until foamy, and then add sugar gradually, beating well after each addition, until stiff. Add nuts and fold, cover well. Reduce oven to 325º F. Pour butter onto a large, shallow jellyroll pan with sides. Add nuts to butter and stir. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool and store in a tightly sealed container.
