Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
10 mins 15 mins 25 mins 6 servings


  • 2 cups mixed nuts (e.g., almonds, cashews, peanuts) (240g)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50g)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (28g)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (21g)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (2g)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mixed nuts, granulated sugar, melted butter, honey, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper (if using). Mix well until all the nuts are evenly coated with the mixture.
  3. Spread the coated nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the nuts are golden brown and fragrant. Stir the nuts halfway through the baking time to ensure even browning.
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the nuts cool completely. As they cool, they will become crispy.
