These Chai Spiced Nuts are a cracker!! Haha – see what I did there!? Even though it’s no way near silly season I’ve gone a bit silly! Maybe it’s because we’ve been eating so much yummy silly season foods. I’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit! And, it’s been so fun in the kitchen creating these goodies for you all!
Nuts were always a staple at my Christmas table growing up. Usually we had walnuts, hazelnuts and brazil nuts, with a nutcracker and we’d sit around and crack nuts. Once my dad even had pine nuts that had grown next door. They tasted amazing! I thought I’d jazz these nuts up a bit by adding a bit of spice, and these Chai Spiced Nuts take it to the next level! They are crunchy, tasty and just so, so good! Such a great addition to any Christmas table. I could imagine a little bowl or two on the table, and you can just dip in and have a snack in between all the other food!
These nuts are also incredibly addictive. There’s something so moreish about them – honestly, Josh and I couldn’t stop eating them! I implore you to make them as soon as you possibly can! Beware though – you won’t be able to stop at just one!!
If you like nuts, you will definitely love these Chai Spiced Nuts. I really would love to make a bunch at Christmas time and put them in cute little jars and give them to my friends – I think it would make a fantastic little Christmas gift! Handmade gifts are always such a cool idea!
Let us know if you make these! We’d love to hear from you! Share the love with your friends on social media too!
