"nuts 4 nuts" candied nuts recipe - help, please

lisavf | Nov 23, 2010 06:58 AM

I love the sugared nuts from the "nuts 4 nuts" vendors in NYC. After recently spending a weekend there and enjoying the nuts again, I decided to try to make them myself. So I found a recipe which purports to be the "secret" to these nuts and I tried it. They were good but not quite the same. The sugar on the street vendor's nuts is in large crystals and very crunchy, and the nuts are crunchy as well. The recipe says to use raw nuts (which I did), but because they were raw, they were soft, not crunchy. Also, the sugar ended up looking more like a fine brown sugar coating. I looked at a couple of sites, and this site has photos from users who have made the recipe. Mine came out the same:

Has anyone made these with different results? Anyone have any tips on how to achieve the crunchy nut/crunchy coating?
