These cashews make an easy and elegant appetizer, party favor, hostess gift or holiday treat. If you use raw nuts, lightly roast them for 10 to 12 minutes.


1 pound whole unsalted roasted cashews
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Recipe directions: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the cashews on a rimmed baking sheet and heat in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes. Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl to form a paste. Add the warm cashews and mix gently until evenly coated. May be served warm or at room temperature.
