  • 1 cup walnut halves and almonds
  • 1/2 cup white powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Heat a nonstick pan. Add dry fruits, butter and sugar into the pan along with the water.
  • Heat this mixture over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently so it doesn’t burn.
  • When the sugar mixture starts melting, stir constantly till all the sugar has melted and the nuts are completely coated. Turn off the gas.
  • Transfer immediately onto a dry plate and separate the nuts right away. Using two spoons will make the task easier. This needs to be done immediately or it will turn into an inseparable chunk of dry fruits.
  • Once the coating on the nuts hardens, transfer them into air tight containers.
