Spicy-Honey Glazed Nuts

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These didn’t go over all that well at work today – they got mixed reviews. But my dad and I love them! I think they’d make a great homemade gift if you’re into that sort of thing.


  • 4 T. honey
  • 4 T. Baker’s sugar
  • 4 T. lime juice
  • 2 T. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. walnut halves
  • 2 c. pecan halves
  • 1 c. almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine honey, sugar, lime juice, oil and spices. Stir in nuts to coat.
  3. Spread nuts in a single layer on prepared baking sheet, drizzling any extra coating over the top. Roast in preheated oven 30 to 40 minutes tossing every five minutes until nuts are glazed, have turned dark brown and smell toasty.
  4. Set sheet on rack to cool, stirring every few minutes to break up the clumps. Once cooled store in an airtight container for two to three weeks.
