Homemade Candied Cashews

Homemade Candied Cashews
Whenever I have a large quantity of cashews, I’m making these scrumptious candied cashews. These are my favorite nuts, they won’t last long. Cashews are on the softer side, and won’t break your teeth.

Homemade Candied Cashews


  • 1 cup unsweetened butter
  • 2 cups unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup granulated or brown sugar mixture
  • Pinch of salt (optional). If cashews already salted, no extra salt


  • Add the butter to a small saucepan over medium heat and let it melt.
  • Add the sugar and cashews.
  • Stir the mixture frequently (it burns easily so watch it closely) until the sugar melts and caramelizes over the nuts. Once all the sugar has melted and coated the nuts, they're done.
  • Spread them onto a plate or piece of parchment paper so they don't all stick together. Some will clump together, which is fine.
  • Allow them to cool then store them in a sealed container
