Caramelized nuts

I’m a hypocrite.

 
We had a mini movie-night tonight and the plate above is our movie snacks. 
  
The Cat in the Hat + cucumbers and apples seems like a lovely way to calm down before bed.

And then the kiddos did just that- went to bed.

And I was by myself (Matty B is on a class trip.) 

Alone.

  
Alone with Mr. Tillamook himself and I remembered these awesome caramelized nuts I made last weekend.

 

I used dibs and dabs of nuts that I had in the pantry: walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds and peanuts.

 

Mix your nuts with a simple syrup of water, sugar and honey. Then bake for 10 minutes or until they smell amazing.

   Fast forward to tonight with quality ice cream, delicious caramelized nuts and this chocolate.

  
What do you have? The ultimate peanut buster parfait.

  
And it was good.

Sidenote: I don’t need an excuse to enjoy ice cream, but I will say that at my last dental checkup I had zero cavities and at the kid’s last checkups, they each had 1+.

Therefore, ice cream for me. Apples and cucumbers for them.

Do as I say, not as I do.
