Sweet, salty, and spiced just right! Rum Glazed Nuts are a welcome treat for gifting or your holiday party. Set out bowls of these nuts and watch them disappear!
2 cups raw nut mix, your choice – pecans, walnuts, cashews
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground allspice
3 Tbsp Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tsp dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
Coarse sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread nuts in an even layer over parchment paper and place baking sheet on the center rack of the oven. Toast about 8 minutes, stirring nuts after about 4 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
3. In a bowl, stir together sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice; set aside.
4. In a small saucepan, add rum, vanilla, brown sugar, and butter. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Stir in toasted nuts and continue to simmer, stirring constantly until nuts are coated evenly and liquid has almost evaporated.
5. Add nuts to the spice mix; toss well to coat. Immediately pour nuts onto a parchment-lined baking sheet; spread evenly and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Let cool and dry completely.
The glazed nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
