Spicy Sugared Cashews - Sweet, crunchy with a touch of heat!

Spicy Sugared Cashews

Sugared cashews with two spicy options, cinnamon or rosemary!


Spice options


  1. Preheat oven to 300ยบ. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In your stand mixer (may be done with a hand mixer or whisk), beat egg white and water till foamy (you do not want the whites to get white like when making meringues).
  3. Add the cashews and mix till they’re well coated.
  4. Add sugar, brown sugar, cayenne, and salt. Stir. Add in your extra ingredient, either the cinnamon or rosemary and mix well.
  5. Spread evenly over your prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes till browned. May cook more or less, just watch carefully to prevent burning.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool completely, even overnight. Store in a covered container.
