Honey Roasted Nuts


These literally are my husbands favourite snack and when he smells them cooking he heads straight to the kitchen. These do store well in an airtight container - not that they last very long in my house.

Honey Roasted Nuts

Makes 1kg (2 large jars, 4 medium jars or 6 mini ones)
Servings 12 people
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 50 gr unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp  sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 kg mixed unsalted nuts (cashews, pecans, peanuts, macadamia almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts and Brazil nuts)
  • 2 tbsp quality sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 180º­C/350ºF.
    Place a medium pan on a medium heat, add the butter and honey and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the butter has melted.
  • If using Brazil nuts, roughly chop some of them up into halves and quarters to make them more bite size. Place all the nuts onto two large roasting trays, then carefully divide the melted butter and honey mix between the two, then scatter over the paprika. Toss to coat all the nuts, then cook for 20-30 minutes, or until golden all over, carefully shaking the tray every 10-15 minutes to make sure they cook evenly.
