In preparation of this recipe, I received free product samples from Nude Bee Honey. As always, all opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting brands that make Girl Heart Food possible and for helping me to continue to do what I love – cook, eat and share delicious recipes.

Five ingredients and only 15 minutes and you’re on your way to one of the most addictive snacks you’ll ever have.  Wildflower Honey is combined with a touch of cayenne pepper, butter and salt to make  salty, sweet nut clusters that you’re going to find hard to resist.

Monday.  Again.  Where does the weekend go?  Blink of an eye, I tells ya!   My sister-in-law informed me of some exciting news this weekend.  Anthony Bourdain is coming to Newfoundland!   YES, Anthony Bourdain – star of CNN’s foodie/travel show Parts Unknown!  It’s one of our favourite shows.  Have you ever watched?

I think if I saw Anthony Bourdain in the street, I would have to go up to him and ask for a picture.  Would I be one of those people who plays it cool and is like ‘yeah, whatever; he is only a celebrity.’  Nope.  Like, when would I ever see him again?!  Ha!  Listen to me….I’m talking as if I’m actually going to meet him. If you saw a favourite celebrity of yours, how would you react?  Now that I’ve got that off my chest, how about some delicious honey roasted peanut clusters🙃?

NUDE BEE HONEY

Have you heard of Nude Bee Honey?  Nude Bee Honey started in 2010 and has been producing some amazing honey since.  It’s raw, natural and unpasteurized.  As soon as you open the jar and dip your finger in dip a spoon in, you’ll know just how good it is.  It has a really smooth, velvety mouth feel and truly the best tasting honey that I’ve ever put in my pie hole😋

For these Honey Roasted Peanut Clusters, I used Nude Bee’s Wildflower Honey.  Though, they do have some other wicked flavours – Buckwheat, Pumpkin and Orange just to name a few.

PREPARATION

This recipe is pretty simple to whip up.  Basically, heat the honey, butter and cayenne on the stove top for a couple of minutes until the butter melts. Then, pour over your peanuts and sprinkle with salt.

Word to the wise – do not, I repeat, DO NOT touch that hot honey—> I touched the hot honey😳

What the heck was I thinking?  My gut got the best of me.  Weeeeeeeell, let me tell you. The sound that I let out was ungodly.  I swear the neighbours heard me.  I freaked the fur baby out and everything.  So, listen, don’t touch hot honey, ok?

You bake these nuts for about 10 minutes on a parchment paper lined pan.  Watch them and check on  after 5 minutes because they can burn fast and no one wants burned nuts.  No one.

After they’ve baked, you can sprinkle with a touch more salt and let sit for a couple of minutes.  Then, place in bowl and stir until cooled.  These nuts will naturally stick to each other in little clusters cause of the honey so what you are left with is little bites of goodness.

Instructions
  1. In a small, heavy bottomed pop on medium heat melt butter into honey (or, alternatively, melt in a microwave safe bowl for 45-60 seconds). Stir in cayenne pepper.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Place peanuts in a bowl and pour honey/butter mixture over top and stir to combine.
  3. Spread peanuts out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of salt. Bake 5 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove pan from oven and stir nuts and rotate pan and bake for another 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with another 1/4 tsp of salt. Let sit a minute or two and then place in a bowl. Stir. You want little clumps of nuts (about 3-5) in a clump (they will naturally stick together). Stir every couple of minutes until cooled slightly, breaking up, as desired. Enjoy!

    These definitely look most addictive! What a nice idea to add cayenne pepper to the mix – I think my gluten-free husband would very much enjoy this little treat (me too of course but it is always good to blame the husband for the necessity of extra treats ;-)) Nude Bee Honey sounds like a great brand – I very much like the jar and am a big fan of raw honey. Have a great weekend, Dawn!

    This is exactly my kind of snack! Yum!
    P.S. I would freak out running into Anthony Bourdain on the street! LOL My husband and I LOVE his show. I rarely drink wine, but every time I watch his show, I have an urge to drink wine while eating food. We have to eat dinner while watching his show, otherwise we’re too hungry after. And drinking wine along, makes me feel like I’m having a casual dinner with him and his guests. hahahaha

    OMG OMG OMG Anthony Bourdain is coming to town? I would totally lose it and go on stalker mode lol! Like, when would you ever get the chance right? So cool! I hope you uhmmm *accidentally* bump into him 🙂 And how yummy are these peanuts? Hard to beat sweet, salty and spicy!

  5. David @ Spiced says:

    So I’m really curious now what Anthony Bourdain will feature when he comes to your neck of the woods. You’ll have to keep us in the loop there! Maybe he’ll even ask to interview you as a local foodie. 😉 As far as these honey roasted nuts, uh…yes!! I love this recipe. It’s so easy, and it’s perfectly snackable. I’m thinking a batch of these could be a great way to enjoy a Saturday full of college football games for me. Thanks for sharing, Dawn!!

    Such pretty photos! And that honey sounds so delicious, especially in this peanut clusters recipe!! Whenever I see anyone famous, I play it cool and pretend I don’t care because I don’t want to bother them or have them think I’m crazy. And then I always regret it!! So, if you see Anthony in the street, you need to get a picture with him!!

    How fun that Anthony Bourdin is coming to your area! I don’t watch his shows too often, but he is fun when I catch him. I would definitely be one of those fan girls and go up to him for a pic! And yay for Monday snacks! I’ve never heard of that honey before, but it sounds delicious. Easy snacks are what my afternoons need, especially when nuts are involved! Pinned! Hope you have a great Monday!
