A careful balance of salty and sweet, crisp and chewy, these nuts are the perfect accompaniment for cocktail hour. You start with raw, untoasted cashews, toss them with oil and set aside. Then you make a syrup with brown sugar, a little water, and honey. Drizzle it over the cashews, toss, spread onto baking sheets and toast in a medium oven till golden brown and crisp. The cashews will last 1 week stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

We featured this recipe in our Bring Happy Hour Home menu, our Bar Snacks photo gallery, and our New Year’s Eve Speakeasy Party.

  1. 1Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
