Spicy Honey Roasted Peanuts are a delicious combination of crunchy peanuts, sweet honey and a zesty spice mix .
We love nuts and trail mixes at my house, but they can get expensive. It is so much cheaper to buy a big bag of plain nuts and season them up at home. And, of course, you get to add exactly what you want when you make it yourself.
These Spicy Honey Roasted Peanuts can be made with any kind of nuts or any combination you prefer. I kept it simple and went with plain peanuts this time around.
This spice mixture is inspired by a recipe from one of my uncles but adjusted for our tastes. If you use a spicy curry powder, you may wish to reduce or eliminate the cayenne pepper. Unless you are part of the “mo’ hotter mo’ better” crowd.
