Toffee Glazed Macadamia Nuts..these are crazy addictive and SO easy, made in just minutes on the stove top!

Over the last few years I have developed an addiction to sugary, glazed nuts. I blame all the magazine articles on “celebrity diets” and how skinny celebs eat 16 almonds at 4:00 pm for an afternoon snack. Let me explain…

While I think the prospect of eating 16 almonds is just precious, I thought I would give it a try and see if it worked.


So it didn’t.

I mean, first off I am allergic to almonds, so there’s that…but even if you sub in 16 pecans you do NOT get full. Trust me. 16 nuts is a snack for ants, not human people.

In an attempt at cracking the celebrity nut case I took a little liberty with the portions of my nut snack…I feel like “16” might be more of a loose suggestion, not a hard limit, right?

Also, I found that nuts are MUCH tastier if they are coated in sugary, buttery toffee or nestled inside of a chocolate chip cookie. Who knew?

So yeah, 16 almonds for Jessica Alba = 1 cup of Glazed Macadamia Nuts for Shelly. It’s celebrity math. I looked it up.

AND turns out that making your own Toffee Glazed Macadamia Nuts is majorly easy. It literally only takes minutes and then you too will be on your way to being a chubby version of Jessica Alba. We’ll be twins!

  1. I laughed out loud at skinny celebs eating just 16 almonds for their snack because I always think, well, I should be skinny, I eat almonds too for my snack….oh…but I eat 116 almonds, like the whole bag. Oh well. You will some you loose some. Anyhow macadamia nuts are my absolute favorite nut, I am a nutcase for them!!! They are like nothing else on earth, but toffee glazed? Holy cow, you just made my day.

  2. 16 pieces of almonds for a snack? Crazy. I tend to eat the whole bag, especially on movie nights. I love your celebrity math, though, except I’ll go for two cups of these macadamias. Maybe even three.

    Love your comedy!! And always look forward to getting a new recipe from you. I think this is one I’ll have to try for sure. I don’t have macadamia nuts on hand but I do have some mixed nuts in my freezer. Hmmmmm

    Celebrity NUTCASE – You are such a crack-up! (Get it, crack-up?!) The wheels are turning in my head,as to what could be done with those yummy nuts: mixed in cookies, brownies, blondies, etc. Maybe include browned butter in such items with the crunchy nuts…..YUM! Just discovered brown butter – where to head to first?


  6. made these yesterday, using the brittle option, (halved the less nuts)…..results were awesome. I have tried many different brittle type recipes and this is the easiest and yet totally dleicious. The first batch, i overcooked 🙁 but regulated the timing……. a little under 5 minutes for me as it continues cooking a little after taking it off heat.. Thanks heaps.
