Spiced roast nuts

spiced roast nuts

These spiced roast nuts make the perfect gift. They’re super easy to make up, and you can make up bulk quantities and then package them up for all your friends, extended family, kid’s school and kindy teachers, etc. 

If any of your giftees have more of a savoury tooth, then these spiced nuts are sure to be a hit. They really are so incredibly easy to make, and so incredibly moreish, they’ll be gone in no time! (seriously, you’ll want to double the quantity so you have enough to feed your little elves too).

Spiced roast nuts


1/2 cup butter
4 cups mixed nuts (you can choose any of your favourites but I think a mix of macadamia, almond, brazil and cashew works really well)
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs soya sauce
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground cloves


Melt butter in the microwave or stovetop – add Worcestershire sauce, soya sauce, salt and spices. Mix well.

Spread onto a baking sheet and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes – tossing as you go to ensure they toast evenly.

Cool and store in an airtight jar until you are ready to package them up. I recommend you do this just before giving the gift if possible as you want the nuts to be as fresh and crunchy as they possibly can be.
