This candied mixed nuts recipe with a hint of pumpkin spice is the perfect appetizer for the holiday table. These are easy to make and they are delicious. These will be a great gift for the holiday season as well.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, olive oil, salt, pumpkin spice, and vanilla extract.
Add all the nuts to the honey mixture and stir until the nuts are evenly coated.
Transfer the pecans to the prepared baking sheet and arrange in a single layer. Scrape out every bit of glaze from the bowl and drizzle over the nuts. Bake for 12- 15 minutes, until the nuts are caramelized. The nuts around the edges will darken first so you can turn the baking sheet around halfway through the baking time.
Once baked, bring it out of the oven and allow the nut to cool completely. Remove the pecans from the parchment or silicone mat, breaking apart any clusters if necessary, and store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
This recipe was adapted from my maple candied pecans.
