Be warned: These are very more-ish. They are great to snack on, and a nice gift idea for teachers, friends or family. They are quick and easy to make, and there are options if you want to make them healthier. I always double up the recipe as we'd go through the small quantity way too quickly! Oh, and did, I warn you? It's really hard to stop nibbling on these.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Makes: 500g

Ingredients
500g of nuts (see below)
1 egg white
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of sugar (see below)
2 tbsp of cocoa (see below)

Method
Whip up the egg white and vanilla using an electric beater or a whisk. Keep going until the mix is a little frothy.
Add 500g of nuts. This is where the options start: I use raw, mixed nuts, but you could use almonds, pecans, or other kinds of nuts on their own. I prefer to use raw nuts, but you could try roasted as an alternative.

Drop in the sugar. I vary the recipe here by using rapadura or coconut sugar instead of white sugar if I am making this for my family. However, I've used white sugar when making large quantities as gifts for teachers and friends.
Add the cocoa. My preference is to use cacao, but I have used regular cocoa on occasion.
Stir the mixture until everything is well combined.
Lay the nuts on a baking tray topped with baking paper. If you double the quantity it is probably best to use two baking trays.

Bake for an hour at 120C, stirring every 15 minutes or so.

Leave to cool (although it is hard to resist nibbling for long) and then store or prepare in gift boxes, jars or as desired.
