Jalapeño Sugared Nuts

Posted by Wild Texas Cowgirl on

Recipe may be Halved, Quartered etc.

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

1 Pound Nuts (Pecans Halves, Walnut Halves, Peanuts, Cashews or Almonds)

1/2 Jar Jalapeño Jelly - Salado Creek Foods, Flavor of your choice or plain

Granulated Sugar


Place nuts and Jelly in heat safe bowl and mix well.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.

Empty bowl onto cookie sheet and spread out 1 layer deep

Bake for 10 minutes or until bubbly.  If you like a really nutty roasted taste…longer…but monitor carefully…it can turn to toooooooo much really fast.


Place nuts in original bowl and start adding the sugar and tossing or mixing with a spoon.  Continue adding sugar until it no longer sticks to the nuts.  I usually start with about 1 cup and then add a tablespoon at a time after that.


Cool and refrigerate or freeze.  These keep almost forever in a zip lock baggie in the freezer.   So easy so fast and so so so impressive to your guests that you made them!!!
