From The Gaither Kitchen {Rosemary Spiced Mixed Nuts}

Over Thanksgiving I made 3 of the most simple “snacky” type recipes.  One item I brought to the feast that was a total hit were Rosemary Spiced Mixed Nuts

I highly suggest them for all of your upcoming holiday parties!

Rosemary Spiced Mix Nuts
{Serves 6-8}

1 pound unsalted mixed nuts- I use lightly salted mixed nuts because I am salt lover
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons flaky sea salt or kosher salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary (for mixture)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary (for topping finishing)

Preheat your oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, toss mixed nuts with melted butter and maple syrup. Add 2 tablespoons chopped rosemary, dark brown sugar, cayenne pepper and 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt, mixing until the nuts are well coated with all flavorings. Spread nuts out onto a  baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake until glazed and golden (about 18 - 20 minutes), stirring twice during the cooking process.

As soon as the nuts come out of the oven, season with an additional 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, and flaky sea salt to taste.    
 Put rosemary nuts in your favorite festive dish and enjoy! 

If you are not serving immediately you can store in an sealed container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
