Spiced Almonds

September 5, 2011 | Appetizers, Popular, Snacks

Looking for something quick to make to put out for guests to nibble on? Here’s your answer: spiced almonds. You can whip up a batch up these in 5 minutes, and best of all, just store the rest in the freezer. When guests show up unexpectedly, simply zap the frozen nuts for a bit to warm them up and release their aromas.I used a moderate amount of cayenne pepper in my spiced almonds and they have a bit of heat, but not too much (for my tastes). Experiment with your own to find the right level to make you happy!

  1. I printed the recipe right away to try. We love nuts at our house. Great pictures! Thanks Michelle. See you Saturday again.


  2. These look fantastic. I have a big can of cashews that my husband just loves, I might just have to try this recipe with them.
