"kettle" nuts

I love kettle corn. I love the buttery slightly sweet, slightly salty combo. I needed a snack after working out in the yard all afternoon, so I took a tablespoon of butter and put it in a pie plate and added about a cup of pecan halves. Put them in the micorwave for a minute to melt the butter, then stirred it up good to coat all the nuts. Then I sprinkled about a tablespoon of granular Suchrin Gold over them and put them back in for another minute. Took them out and gave them a stir and put them back for one more minute.

Salt them to suit your taste. I put them in the freezer to speed up cooling them (blood sugar was getting low!) Really good sub for kettle corn.

That sounds good. Thanks for the recipe.

I may try that but I might add a couple of cups of Skinny Pop Popcorn to mine. I love kettle corn and caramel corn too. I actually found some caramel corn flavoring. So now I'm wondering if they make kettle corn flavoring...it's a thought.

Okay, so I'm answering my own quesion here...I found some.

They are like regular roasted, salted pecans, but with a slightly sweet taste. I also make some that are candied in a thin peanut brittle type of syrup. They contain poly D and malitol, so may cause intestinal distress if you are sensitive

Nut Clusters

1 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
1 cup almonds
1 cup peanuts
˝ cup raw sunflower seeds
or any mix of nuts you like making 4 1/2 cups total


1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar free honey (malitol syrup type)
2/3 cup poly dextrose
2 tbsp water
AS equal to 1 cup sugar (or to taste)


Pre heat oven to 315 degrees.

Measure out all the nuts and set them aside.

In a large microwave safe bowl mix the salt, honey, poly-D and artificial
sweetener and water. Mix well and taste for sweetness. If necessary add more sweetener.
Microwave on high one minute. Mix well, and add the nuts.
Mix THOROUGHLY until all the nuts are coated with the syrup. Return to the microwave for 1 minute.

Line a cookie sheet with a rim with baking parchment. Spray the parchment lightly with cooking spray, and spread the nut mixture evenly over the pan. (Let the parchment hang over the edge so the syrup does not run under the paper.) Use a spatula coated with cooking spray to spread to an even thickness so it will heat evenly.

Bake at 315 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Allow to cool, tip out of the pan, peel off the paper and break into bite sized
pieces.

Store in an air tight container. Moisture in the air will make it sticky.

Note, I use Honeytree sugar free honey because the nature's hollow is made with xylitol, and won't cook to hard crack stage like malitol does. You can also substitute malitol pancake syrup for the honey.
