How to Make Honey Roasted Cashews

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, add the cashews and set aside.

Step 2

In a medium saucepan, add the butter, honey, and 1/4 cup cane sugar and melt over medium heat. When the sugar is completely dissolved, remove from the heat. Pour the sugar mixture over the cashews and stir to coat completely.

Step 3

Transfer the cashew mixture to the prepared baking sheet and spread out evenly. Bake for 35 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Step 4

To make the topping: In a small dish, add together the 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cane sugar and 1 teaspoon sea salt and mix together. Sprinkle over the top of the warm cashews and stir to coat completely. Let cool completely on the baking sheet.

Tips for Honey Roasted Cashews

• Use organic raw cashews for this recipe. You don’t want to use roasted and salted cashews because you are going to roast and salt them! They could end up burnt and too salty if you use already roasted and salted cashews.

• Parchment paper helps incredibly with this recipe as these become very sticky and will harden onto the baking sheet once cooled. So, I highly recommend using parchment paper.

• These are a great snack to make a few days ahead of a party! They will last for up to 1 month (if you don’t eat them all!). So that makes them a great recipe to make ahead of time.

• Be sure to store in an airtight container. I like to use a glass jar for this and I keep that in my pantry.

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of nut?

Yes, of course, if you want to make peanuts, pecans, walnuts or even a mix of nuts you can do that!

How should I store these?

These are best stored in an airtight container in the pantry.

You all know I’m a huge organic advocate. And I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good. Otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else.

Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones. Therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Additionally, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! I linked all the exact ingredients I used when making this recipe in the Ingredients section.
