Ingredientsspiced matcha candied walnuts ingredients

  • 3 cups raw walnut halves and pieces
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Chinese Five Spice
  • ¼ tsp Matcha
  • 1/8 to ¼ tsp (or more) smoked serrano chile powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Put the walnuts in a bowl and cover with water while you assemble the other ingredients into a medium mixing bowl. Use a whisk to mix the sugar and spices thoroughly.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat.
  3. Drain the nuts into a colander and allow to drain for a couple of minutes, then mix with the sugar/spice mixture until the nuts are evenly coated with glaze.
  4. Spread the nuts in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, and toast in preheated oven for 10 – 15 minutes. Watch closely so the nuts don’t burn. When the nuts are a deep golden brown and the glaze has lost the ‘wet’ look the nuts are ready to come out of the oven.
  5. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
