Recipe: Christmas spiced nuts

These lightly spiced nuts are perfect for wintry elevenses. If someone is popping round, you can rustle up a delicious store-cupboard treat with just a few minutes of effort. For a more savoury pre-dinner nut, use half the quantity of sugar and replace with half a teaspoon of salt.

Ingredients Serves: 6

  • 70g Christmas spiced sugar
  • 300g unsalted nuts (hazelnut, almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachio, cashew)
  • 100g dried fruit, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 egg white


  1. Pre-heat oven to 150°C/300°F/gas 2
  2. Whisk the egg-white until it starts to foam. Stir in the nuts, dried fruit, and sugar and mix well.
  3. Spread nut mixture onto a baking sheet. Cook for 20-25 minutes. Stir half way through cooking.
  4. Leave to cool before serving.
