These nuts combine the perfect blend of salty and sweet, and hot and spicy. It’s an easy way to make simple mixed nuts a special treat.

Warning: they can be addictive!

Spiced Nuts

1 1/4 pounds of mixed unsalted nuts (you can buy them mixed or create your own combination)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary

1/2 teaspoon (or more to taste) cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons coase salt

1 tablespoon melted butter

Toast the nuts in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and and toss the warm nuts in the mixture until evenly coated.

Enjoy!

Tip: Nuts go from warm to burnt very quickly. Check on them frequently, and shake the pan from time to time to avoid burning them.
