Honey Roasted Cashews Recipe


½ cups honey
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon (with the quantity halved)
4 cups unsalted roasted cashews
(If you have raw nuts, roast them in the oven at 120 C, turning them every 15 minutes until lightly browned.)
2 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp salt


1) Melt butter under low heat.

2) Meanwhile, mix the honey, butter and ½ tsp ground cinnamon in a saucepan.

3) Pour in the melted butter into honey mixture. Bring to boil over medium heat for around 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4) After removing mixture from the heat, pour over the cashews and mix them thoroughly. Make sure the nuts are all coated in the honey mixture.

5) Spread the cashews on a paper-lined baking tray.

6) Roast in the oven at 160 C for about 10-15 minutes or until the cashews are lightly browned.

7) Combine the caster sugar, salt and remaining ½ tsp ground cinnamon in a big bowl.
