GF Chinese Snacking

I'm getting my daily Asian insight on Wiki. Today:

Chinese Five Spice Nuts
Peanuts are a symbol of longevity in Chinese culture. I experimented with walnuts and peanuts and added more spice. Makes lots, I'm saving some in the freezer for Christmas parties.


  • 2 cups unsalted nuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder


Line a baking sheet with foil or wax paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray I stirred all the ingredients in a bowl and dumped tem onto a baking sheet. I baked them for 20 minutes at 300 and then cooled and stored in a sealed canister.
