Candied Nuts Add a Decadent Touch to a Boring Muffin Mix
Muffins are easier to make than you think, and even if you pick up a packaged mix from the store, you can add some candied nuts to it. The end result is usually a plain muffin with a crunchy sweetness in every bite.
Whether you’re using homemade or boxed dough, add a handful of candied nuts to take your muffins to the next level of flavor. This works with just about any type of nut, so use whatever is in your pantry. If you don’t have candied nuts on hand, you can cook them yourself by tossing a cup of nuts, a tablespoon of butter, and a quarter cup of white sugar in a nonstick skillet until the nuts are well coated. Separate and let cool before tossing into muffin mix.
