Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp. red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups mixed nuts

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly oil the paper. Set aside the baking sheet.
  • Place all the ingredients except the mixed nuts in a medium-sized nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, until the mixture reaches a syrup consistency, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the nuts and gently fold them into the syrup mixture until evenly coated. Use a rubber spatula to make the mixing easier and take care not to break up the nuts.
  • Transfer the nuts to the prepared baking sheet and spread out in an even layer. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring and turning the nuts about every 6 to 8 minutes. Be very watchful during the last half of baking, as the nuts can burn quickly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
