  2. Three Spiced Nuts Recipe

New Year’s concludes the holiday season, although a lot of times, I try and extend it as long as possible. As a rule of thumb, I don’t over plan for New Year’s: just a simple evening with good friends and of course champagne. A great charcuterie platter is my go-to for the evening; it’s festive and so easy to put together. Everyone can nibble, sip and mingle as they please. And any great charcuterie wouldn’t be complete without some great nuts and these three are addictive. I loved testing these and eating them all (and I mean all) as nuts are my weakness. These go together in a snap and can be made a few days in advance. What could be better?

Nuts are extremely easy to customize to your taste. Try making a variation of the recipe if these aren’t your favorite flavors! I love to have bowls of these ready for guests – or just for myself! Happy New Year!
