Christmas or new years nibbles - Honey chilli cashews

This is another of Janelle Blooms recipes from one of my favourite ever issues of Family Circle (Christmas 2007).  Who doesn't love cashews?  Seriously too yummy.

These are quick and easy and will have your guests happily munching - great with a drink or just on your Christmas table.  Enjoy your Christmas friends!

750g unsalted cashews
100g butter
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp hungarian (smoked) paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt flakes

Preheat oven to 200 degrees c

In a saucepan mix butter, honey, 1/4 cup of water, chilli, paprika and salt - heat until boiling, turn off and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

When cooled, pour over cashews (in a bowl) mix well.

Pour out onto a greased baking tray and roast for about 5 minutes or until golden brown, stir and turn cashews and return to oven for a further few minutes or so until browned on other side.

 Allow to cool until cold, then store in airtight container for up to 5 days.
