If you are ready to try an addictive snack, this is for you! They taste great and are super crunchy. Skip to the recipe.
This recipe belongs to my list of candied nuts! I already posted the recipe for candied almonds (see here) . The issue with Sunflower seeds is that they are small so you can eat a ton of them and don’t even notice it! They taste somewhat buttery and the sugar add a sweet taste and the crunchy texture. It does take a lot of stirring but not too much time to make them. I used raw sunflower seeds, not toasted because they are going to get toasted in the process of candying them.
You only need 4 ingredients and you can store them for many months, but to be honest, I know no person who could resist the temptation to eat them straight away!
