Are you looking for an irresistible appetizer idea to serve with some drinks for your Holiday get together?

Serve some hot Spanish paprika spiced nuts covered with maple syrup, rosemary and sprinkled with salt. This is a very addictive snack. You may want to double the recipe, just in case!

This sweet and spicy rosemary nut mixture would also make a thoughtful little hostess gift.


*  3 cups (450 g) almonds, whole
*  2 cups (200 g) walnuts, whole
*  2 cups (200 g) pecans, whole
*  1/3 cup (80 ml) organic maple syrup
*  1/4 cup (45 g) light brown sugar
*  3 Tablespoons (45 ml) orange juice, freshly squeezed
*  2 Tablespoons hot Spanish paprika powder
*  4 Tablespoons fresh rosemary, minced
*  4 teaspoons kosher salt


Preheat your oven to 350 F. Line baking sheet with silicon pad.

In a big bowl mix nuts, maple syrup, sugar, orange juice, paprika, 2 Tablespoons rosemary and 2 teaspoons of salt until well combined.

Spread mixture in one layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Stir nut mixture twice while baking.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and mix in the remaining two tablespoons of rosemary and two teaspoons of salt. Let cool and store in air tight container until serving.

Hey Kirsten,
wow die Nussmischung sieht echt verführerisch aus! Selbst gewürzte Knabbernüsse habe ich auch schon oft gemacht, allerdings bisher immer mit indischen Gewürzen. Aber mit Rosmarin und Paprika kann ich es mir auch super vorstellen – macht bestimmt süchtig ;o) Das mach ich auf jeden Fall nach!
Liebe Grüße & einen schönen zweiten Advent,

I'm with Karen, I have a Rosemary Plant in my kitchen window that I've managed to keep alive. This recipe sounds delicious. I also have one bookmarked from Ina Garten. However, this is the type of snack that I can't be trusted around. I could eat the whole bowl in about 2 seconds flat.

What a nice recipe Kirsten. I have been able to keep my rosemary alive so I think I will reward myself with a bowl of these nuts.

If there is a bowl of nuts at a party I'm usually standing near it. These look amazing. I bet they would make great gifts too.
