Sugar Coated Nuts


I had some left over sugar syrup of the jamoon,didn't want to waste it.My friend's mom gave me an idea for this recipe.........Really wonderful & my kids who hates nuts finished the whole bowl.My daughter took this as her snack to school.You can also use the ready made rasagolla syrup in the tins which we usually throw.I haven't measured the ingredients for this recipe,please excuse....


Ingredients
Any left over sugar syrup
(I used gulab jamoon syrup)
Mixed nuts cut into half of your choice
(walnut,almond,cashew nut,pecan)
Method
Pour the syrup in a non stick pan & let it boil.
When its almost 1 & 1/2 string consistency,add the nuts & keep mixing till it becomes dry & forms a sugar coating on all nuts.
Switch off the stove.Put it in a plate to cool & then store it.
