The story start with mum bought a bag of dry roasted cashew nut but then she didn’t want to finish it because it a bit too bland. And as a nice daughter I offered to make some flavour for the nut and that how the whole idea of French Vanilla Cashew But from. French Vanilla nut usually come with almond (maybe coz it call French as French love almond a lot), but as you know all I have in hand is cashew nut but feel free to substitute with any other nut of your favourite.
I know it better to have either raw or just roasted nut but really it just not as exciting as these delicious sugar coated nut. I remember last time I went Costco shopping and wanting to buy the French vanilla almond and the price is almost double the price of normal almond and to be honest I was pretty shock. So I never really buy any flavoured nut from store instead I love to make my own batch.
It is way more worth to make your own batch because first you don’t need to pay double the price and second it very easy to get the ingredient in your kitchen and last but not least, it very quick to make and not hard at all. It makes perfect snacks for a handful with a cup of espresso coffee, c’est bon.
Hope you enjoy this recipe and save some penny for your pocket by making your own snack at home.
