Mixed nuts are a staple for just about any holiday get-together. This festive recipe adds maple and rosemary for a perfectly joyous and seasonal hors d’oeuvre.
4 cups roasted, unsalted mixed nuts
¼ cup pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place nuts onto parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon rosemary and ½ teaspoon salt.
Pour mixture over nuts and use your hands to mix until all the nuts are coated evenly.
Roast nuts for 20 minutes, flipping once.
Remove nuts from the oven and toss with the remaining 1 teaspoon rosemary and ½ teaspoon salt. Let them sit for about 10 minutes and then break them apart, if needed. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to one week.
