Ingredients

  • ¼ cup - honey
  • 3 cups - mixed nuts, plain
  • 1 tbsp - butter
  • 1 tsp - sea salt
  • 1 tsp - chile piquin or cayenne pepper, powdered

Directions

Heat honey and butter in a pot over low flame, stirring with a spatula until blended. Add the chile piquin and the salt. For best results, use a thick-based pot so that the heat distributes evenly.

Add nuts into pot, stirring every so often to make sure that the honey covers them completely. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, making sure to leave enough space between them so that they don’t stick together. Let stand until cool.

Heat the oven to 250°F and bake the nuts for 10 - 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Let stand until cool and serve.
