Orange Spiced Nuts

I love making different flavored nuts and snack mixes.  I think they are great to have on hand to take to a party, etc.  My friend Michelle shared this yummy recipe with me.  I love these yummy Orange Spiced Nuts.  I chatted with Michelle and this recipe originally came from the Pioneer Woman.  Ree calls them Fancy Roasted Cocktail Nuts. I made them recently to add to a charcuterie board and they were a perfect addition.  We couldn't stay out of them!!

My first batch burned so I lowered the temp and cooked them a little less.  I see that The Pioneer Woman has a few other flavor suggestions to try.

Orange Spiced Nuts (adapted from The Pioneer Womans Fancy Roasted Cocktail Nuts)

1 cup roasted unsalted Cashew halves ( I used salted)
1 cup Walnut halves
1 cup Pecan halves
1 cup whole roasted unsalted almonds ( I used raw)
1 Tbsp fresh Orange zest ( I used more... or zest of a whole orange)
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 300. 

In a large bowl, stir to combine nuts and spices.  Drizzle maple syrup over the mixture and stir to evenly distribute. 

Spread out evenly on a sheet pan and roast for 30 minutes.  ( I put mine on parchment paper).  Roast for 25 - 30 minutes - stirring once halfway through.

When the nuts come out of the oven, immediately remove them to a bowl.  I left mine on the parchment paper - gently making sure they didn't stick to each other. Store in an airtight container for several days.
