Hi Bold Bakers!
I am so excited to share this recipe for Microwave Sweet and Spicy Nuts with you. That’s right, the microwave! I know it sounds crazy but after making my Microwave Potato Chips you guys asked for more microwave snacks so I got right into the kitchen and started experimenting.
This recipe is a great one to keep in your back pocket. Whether it be for entertaing, afternoon snacking or your kid’s lunches, who doesn’t love delicious spiced mixed nuts? For those of you who didn’t know, you can toast nuts in the microwave! After a quick toast I add spices, honey and siracha and pop the nuts back in the microwave for just a few short minutes.
I love the balance between sweet honey and spicy sriracha. There is something so satisfying about a snack that is both sweet and savory. The finished mixed nuts taste just like they’ve been toasting up in the oven.
They are crunchy, sticky and golden brown, truly the perfect spiced mixed nuts. I love to give these as gifts or serve them with drinks and appetizers. No one would ever know they were made in minutes in the microwave. You must give this recipe a try!
