Rosemary and Tarragon Spicy Mixed nuts are the perfect snack, accompaniment to a charcuterie board, to serve with cocktails and to give as gifts.
Good morning friends! Today I have a super easy recipe to share for Rosemary and Tarragon Spicy Mixed Nuts. These sweet, spicy, herby nuts are a great addition to your holiday party or gift basket.
You can customize the flavor to have a little more heat or to be a little more sweet to suit your taste. I suggest making a batch this week so that you have them on hand to serve to your Thanksgiving guests.
Last year I made 5 lbs of these nuts to include in my gift baskets and boxes. Then I made an additional 2 lbs to have on hand at the house for guests. I guess you could say that we really are nuts for these nuts. I think you will be too!
Rosemary and Tarragon Spicy Mixed Nuts
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon dried, crumbled rosemary
1/2 Tablespoon dried, crumbled tarragon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
11/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for sprinkling
3 cups of unsalted mixed nuts, pistachios, pecans, cashews, almonds walnuts(or nuts of your choice)
Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Pour the nuts in a large bowl. In a small bowl melt butter( in the microwave or on the stove) then stir in the brown sugar and the spices, mix well. Pour the butter mixture over the nuts, mix well so that all of the nuts are well coated.
Spread the nuts out on a baking sheet and bake until they become glazed, about 18-20 minutes. Stir one during the baking process. Remove from oven and let cool.
