Smoky roasted almonds are simple to make at home and make the perfect snack or appetizer.

Spiced nuts are one of my go-to appetizers. Do they count as an appetizer? Snack, appetizer, whatever…they taste good with cocktails and everyone at a party loves a handful of them. These would be great for New Year’s Eve. Or just for snacking! They could not be any easier to make. 

Do you hear me?

COULD NOT BE EASIER. No excuses for buying the salt-laden, so-so tasting, mixed nuts at the store. These are unique, delicious…and umm….easy.
