Coating snack nuts with a coating pan attachment is a fantastic way to create delicious and evenly coated treats. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to coat snack nuts using a coating pan attachment:

Coating Snack Nuts with a Coating Pan Attachment


  • 2 cups of your preferred snack nuts (almonds, cashews, peanuts, etc.)
  • 8 ounces (about 1 1/3 cups) of chocolate, candy melts, or coating chocolate
  • Optional: Flavorings such as vanilla extract, spices, or sea salt


1. Prepare the Snack Nuts:

  • If your chosen nuts are not already toasted, you can toast them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 8-10 minutes until they are fragrant and slightly golden. Allow them to cool before coating.

2. Melt the Coating:

  • Chop the chocolate or candy melts into small pieces to ensure even melting.
  • Melt the chocolate using a double boiler or microwave, as per the instructions on the packaging.

3. Prepare the Coating Pan Attachment:

  • Make sure the coating pan attachment is clean, dry, and properly assembled. These attachments consist of a rotating drum that evenly coats the nuts with chocolate.

4. Load the Coating Pan:

  • Place the cooled and dry snack nuts into the coating pan attachment.

5. Add Flavorings (Optional):

  • If desired, you can add flavorings such as a few drops of vanilla extract, spices like cinnamon or nutmeg, or a pinch of sea salt to the nuts in the coating pan.

6. Start the Coating Process:

  • Drizzle the melted chocolate or candy coating over the snack nuts in the coating pan attachment.

  • Turn on the coating pan attachment to start the rotation process. The rotating drum will evenly distribute the melted chocolate over the nuts.

7. Allow the Coating to Set:

  • Let the coating pan attachment run for several minutes, allowing the chocolate to evenly coat the snack nuts.

8. Check and Adjust:

  • Open the coating pan attachment occasionally to check if the nuts are evenly coated. If needed, use a spatula to gently mix the nuts to ensure even coverage.

9. Cool and Set:

  • Once the nuts are thoroughly coated, turn off the coating pan attachment and carefully remove the coated nuts.

  • Spread the coated nuts onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray to cool and fully set.

10. Store and Serve:

  • Once the coating is fully set, transfer the coated snack nuts to an airtight container or resealable bag.

  • Store them in a cool, dry place. Properly stored, they should last for several weeks.

Coating snack nuts using a coating pan attachment results in a consistent and professional-looking finish. This method is commonly used in confectionery settings to create uniform coatings on various treats. Experiment with different types of chocolate, candy melts, or coatings to create a variety of delicious snack nuts. Enjoy your homemade chocolate-covered nuts!
