Honey Roasted Cashews

The month of December makes me think of nuts. Whether they are spiced pecans, honey roasted peanuts, or just plain salted cashews people love giving the gift of nuts during the Christmas season. These honey roasted cashews are easy to make and you can double or even triple the batch to give to neighbors, family and friends. Serve these with  holiday cocktails and you are sure to have your crowd coming back for more!
