An easy recipe that makes a great gift. It’s a good snack to serve with drinks too.


Units Scale
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • Pinch cayenne or a few grinds of black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups raw almonds (or your favourite nut)


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat melt the butter with molasses, sugar, spices and salt.
  2. Stir to combine and continue to stir until sugar has dissolved.
  3. When mixture starts to bubble add nuts and stir until well coated.
  4. Turn nuts onto a parchment lined baking sheet, spread in a single layer, and bake at 300 until nuts are nicely toasted, about 20-30 minutes.
  5. Stir from time to time while baking and begin testing after 15 minutes or so (you don’t want the nuts to get too brown).
  6. Cool and break into pieces.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
