Mr.Food Test Kitchen Tips!

  • In case you’re not familiar with Espresso powder, it’s a very strong granulated coffee used to make Espresso. You can find it in your local market along with all the other coffee.
  • If you're looking for even more delicious coffee recipes, try our Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies, or our Cookie 'n' Coffee Brownies
  • Try our tasty Mocha Frosting to give your next cake that extra something special.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made these for a party I hosted and they were a huge hit! These nuts are a crowd pleasing change from glazed or plain salted. Everyone asked for the recipe before they left!

This is a great recipe. Can it be made with whole almonds? Thanks

We haven't tried this recipe with whole almonds, but we believe it would work with whole almonds, if you try it please let us know how they turned out. Enjoy!

Oops! We added the ingredients as soon as we saw your note. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Please repeat this recipe - Java Nuts - in a future newsletter. The list of ingredients is missing. Thanks, Jan
