Spicy Honey Roasted Almonds
Recipe type: Snack, Appetizer, Cocktails
These Spicy Honey Roasted Almonds are not only a healthy snack but they are extremely easy to prepare. A hint of spice, a little sweetness and crunch make them perfect for cocktail hour, too.
  • 2 - 2½ cups raw almonds
  • ⅛ cup turbinado sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¾ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 325° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. If using parchment, lightly oil it.
  2. Combine the sugar and salt in a bowl large enough to accommodate the almonds and set aside.
  3. Melt the honey in a large skillet over low to medium heat. Add the cayenne and the almonds and stir until all the nuts are coated with the honey and spice.
  4. Spread the nuts in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Let the almonds cool slightly and toss them in the sugar-salt mixture. Remove the parchment or wax lining from the baking sheet and spread out the almonds on it again to let them cool completely.
  5. Transfer to a serving bowl and they're ready!
