beer nuts

I love these and I don't even drink beer. one word of warning though, these are very addictive. they can be kept for 2 weeks in an airtight container, just toast them again when you want to serve them.
2 1/4 cups (18 oz) mixed nuts
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  1. preheat the oven to 350ยบ.
  2. toss the nuts in a large bowl to combine and spread them out on a baking sheet.
  3. toast in the oven until they become light golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  4. in a large bowl, combine the rosemary, cayenne, sugar, and melted butter.
  5. thoroughly toss the toasted nuts in the spiced butter and serve warm. once you eat these, you will never want to stop.
