They turned out wonderful! I recipe was for peanuts and I forgot that there isn't as much surface area in cashews so there was some extra chipotle honey goo in there. This made them a bit spicier but not too bad. The amount of chipotle powder is perfect. They leave a very slight zing in your mouth without actually being spicy. We all loved them!
Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts Recipe
Adated from Veronica's Cornucopia
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound skinless peanuts (use a bit more if using a larger nut like a cashew)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Stir together the sugar, chipotle powder, chili powder, and garlic powder in a small bowl; set aside.
Stir together the butter, honey, and salt in a large saucepan over medium heat until the butter has melted, and the mixture is bubbly. Stir in the peanuts until well coated, then pour out into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven until the nuts are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Stir the mixture 2 or 3 times to ensure even cooking. Once done, scrape the peanuts into a large metal bowl, and sprinkle with the spice mixture. Toss the peanuts to evenly coat with the spice mixture. Allow the peanuts to cool to room temperature, tossing every few minutes so the nuts do not stick together.
