Author Notes: A little chunk of heavenly goodness – the right amount of crunch with not-too-sweet honey. —THE MATH CHEF
Serves: 4 or 6, depending on how much resistance you can maintain in the face of these little nuggets.
cups pecans, peeled and halved
cup Brazil nuts, peeled and coarsely chopped
cup almonds, peeled and coarsely chopped
tablespoons olive oil, preferably organic extra-virgin
- In a stainless steel skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over moderate heat for a minute.
- Add the nuts and honey in single layers, stirring constantly, and replacing each layer with a new one when done until the store of nuts is exhausted. The honey-nut mixture should be removed from the pan when the nuts stick to each other, and placed on a sheet of silver foil.
- Break the layers into uneven wedges of almost uniform size, approximately 1.5-in. squares.
