Microwave Sweet and Salty Nuts - Your favorite travel snack has now become even easier then ever to make.

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.

I did a mix of cashew & almonds. I used Nando’s extra hot peri-peri sauce instead of sriracha (because I thought I had sriracha but it turned out I didn’t). I only added 3/4 the salt because I generally eat less salt (it’s a problem in my family because everyone else eats more salt than I do). It turned out good, but I reckon it’d probably taste a lot better with sriracha. My microwave only goes to 900W but 2 minutes roasting (straight out of the fridge) and 3 minutes with the seasonings was enough.

Thanks

I loved your recipe. Tasted great! Mine stayed slightly sticky so I was wondering if I needed to cook it a little longer or if that is just the nature of the honey being used on them.

Hi Gemma
Sounds delicious! I do not have a microwave. How long would you put it in the oven at which temperature? Thanks!!!

Hi Gemma,

What do you think about switching out the spices with the ranch spice mix you use in the microwave potato chip recipe? I suppose you’d still add the honey in to caramelized, so they’d be sweet cool ranch 🙂
