Sweet and Salty Peanuts are delightful for snacking and fabulous for topping off your favorite salads or desserts!
Candied nuts are always a must in my kitchen… they’re so great to have on hand to add to any dish that needs an added pop of flavor or crunchy texture! Here are a couple of the other candied nut recipes that I love too… Candied Walnuts, Sweet and Spicy Candied Pecans, and Bourbon Spiced Pecans.
