Chile-Honey Roasted Nuts

  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 4 CUPS
  • FAST

  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 1/4 cup sugar
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  3. 1/4 cup honey
  4. 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  5. 1 pound unsalted roasted mixed nuts (about 4 cups)
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Lightly oil the parchment. In a bowl, combine the sugar with the salt.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the honey with the cayenne. Add the nuts and stir to coat. Spread the nuts in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Let the nuts cool slightly, then add them to the sugar-salt mixture and toss to coat. Discard the parchment and spread the nuts out on the baking sheet to cool completely, then transfer to a bowl and serve.
Make Ahead The nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Notes Use coarse turbinado sugar (like Sugar in the Raw) and kosher salt to give these nuts extra crunch.

Suggested Pairing

Try a crisp and refreshing California sparkling wine to help recover from the kick of cayenne spice or try a Californian off-dry sparkling wine to match the sweetness of the nuts.
