There is a traditional Japanese sweet snack called ‘Karinttō’ which I love always. It’s a deep-fried sweet biscuit sticks coated with unrefined dark brown sugar same as muscovado. I have never made ‘Karinttō’ but this easy-to-make ‘Muscovado Coated Nuts’ are even tastier than ‘Karintō’ and healthier. However, I always make a small amount at a time because it is so hard to stop eating.


Roasted Nuts (Walnuts, Almonds, Pecans are recommended) 1 cup
Muscovado 1/4 cup *firmly packed
Water 1 tablespoon

  1. Place a sheet of baking paper on a large plate or a baking tray.
  2. Place Muscovado and Water in a saucepan, heat over a low heat stirring.
  3. When Muscovado has melted and started making bubbles, remove from heat. Add Nuts and mix well to make all nuts coated with Muscovado.
  4. Spread the nuts on the prepared baking sheet, separate them from each other if you wish, and let them cool.
