OH MAN are these soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good (that is honestly not enough o’s). But, be warned- they are addicting! This recipe has been passed around from friend to friend and I received the recipe from my co-worker and friend Jodi. That is of course after she brought some in for me to try and I asked/demanded the recipe! After making them myself, and reliving there amazingness, I decided I had to share them with all of you!

These nuts are great to snack on during the week, to serve as an appetizer at a party, or in your holiday baskets! I used them as cute decorations and party favors for my Thanksgiving Dinner I hosted.

Ingredients
  • 6 cups Unsalted Mixed Nuts (I used Costco's which had pistachios, almonds, pecans, and cashews. But, any mixture would work)

  3. In a large saucepan sprayed with non-stick spray on medium heat, place all the ingredients EXCEPT the nuts and only 3 teaspoons of the rosemary.
  4. Mix and stir occasionally until the mixture becomes syrupy.
  5. Once syrupy, place nuts in the saucepan and mix together.
  6. Spread the nut mixture in an even layer on both baking sheets and place in the oven.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, mix then bake for another 10 minutes mix, and then bake for 5 more minutes.
