Maple Chipotle Spiced Nuts
Sweet, savory and spicy, this nut mix is a perfect appetizer accompaniment, snack or holiday gift!
- 1 pound unsalted mixed nuts, preferably raw: almonds, walnut and pecan halves, peanuts
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, chipotle powder, salt, and pepper. Add the nuts to the mixture and toss well to coat. Spread the coated nuts in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes; then stir and roast another 5 to 7 minutes, remove to a heat-proof bowl and allow to cool. Break up any nuts that are stuck together.
Serve with fruit and cheese, sparkling cider, or cocktails. Make an extra-large batch and package in small jars you decorate for a homemade holiday gift.
