The Best Sweet & Spicy Nut Mix: What’s Your Favorite Movie Night Snack?

For movie nights, my family loves to add a little jazz to our favorite healthy snacks. For example, we like to have apples with honey and cinnamon, and one of my friend’s delicious recipes called: “Best Sweet and Spicy Nut Mix.”

Here’s how you make it:

  • 1 lb mixed nuts (unsalted)
  • 3 tsp melted butter
  • 2 T fresh rosemary
  • 2 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Toast the nuts at 350 for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile mix everything else.

When nuts are done, pour the butter mixture over them and stir. A really good way to mix it up is to put the nuts in a Tupperware container, put on the lid and shake!
