3 Tbs sugar
1-1/2 Tbs water
1/4 tsp 5-spice powder*
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup Roasted Soy Nuts
In a 1-quart microwave-safe dish, stir together the sugar and water. Microwave on full power for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through, until mixture is foamy and getting thick.
Add in the 5-spice powder, black pepper and soy nuts. Stir quickly to coat the nuts evenly. Be careful the sugar mixture will be hot.
Microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds more. Spread the nuts onto a nonstick or lightly greased baking sheet to cool. If they stick together, press lightly to break apart.
