Yield
Serves 10 (serving size: about 16 almonds)

Spiced nuts are usually baked; this stovetop version speeds up the process. The smoky-spicy snack will store well in an airtight container for several days.

How to Make It

Step 1

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Place the almonds in a medium nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat for 6 minutes or until lightly toasted, shaking pan frequently. Combine the remaining ingredients in a 2-cup glass measure. Microwave at HIGH for 30 seconds. Add honey mixture to pan, and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Arrange almond mixture on prepared baking sheet in a single layer; let stand 10 minutes. Break apart any clusters.

Was ok, the chipotle flavor was a bit strong for me, and they weren't spicy at all - just a weird smoky flavor. I did use canned chipotle in adobo sauce instead of the powder, and just chopped finely, so maybe that was the problem.

I made these the week I got my October Cooking Light, and boy, are they good! I made them exactly as directed, put them in an airtight container and took them to work. They're a perfect snack! I will make these over and over again.

Super fast and really good. I've only used brown sugar instead of white and they turned out great. I will often break them up and sprinkle on pasta salads - especially pasta salads with a vinegar based dressing. These nuts are very versatile.

lI'd like to know how you know how much a serving is. It gives the nutritional facts for one serving, but doesn't say how much is a serving.

Super easy, the nuts came out perfectly glazed and crunchy sweet with just a hint of spice. This will be my go to recipe.

Quick and easy and nice end result. I didn't have the chipotle chili powder, i just doubled regular chili powder, and it didn't do too much. No spice. But a nice solid recipe good for gifts of a fancy appetizer for good friends!
