Candied Nuts


Alex Porter, chef at Norma's at Le Parker Meridien Hotel, concocted an incredible Chocolate Banana Waffle Napoleon. In his recipe, bananas are sauteed and layered onto waffles; the whole creation is then topped with chocolate and these candied nuts.

  • 2/3 cup walnuts
  • 2/3 cup hazelnuts, blanched
  • 2/3 cup macadamia nuts
  • 2 1/2 cups pure maple syrup
  • 3 cups canola oil


  1. Combine nuts and maple syrup in small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and continue to cook until syrup begins to coat nuts, about 30 minutes.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat canola oil to 350 degrees. Strain nuts to remove any excess syrup. Transfer to a baking sheet to cool. Fry nuts until crispy and any excess caramel is removed. Remove to a baking sheet lined with a Silpat baking mat. Let cool.
