These nuts would probably be a hit at your next football party accompanied by some ice-cold beer. The fragrance of the the rosemary is wonderful. From the Union Square Cafe Cookbook, and voted "best bar nuts" award in New York by The New York Press.

Oh these are wonderful! I took them to a dessert buffet we had for a class I am taking (a little savory to go with all the sweet), and they were a big hit with all the guests. A word of warning...these are very hot. That is fine with me, I like spicy food, but some may want to cut the cayenne pepper back to 1/2 to 3/4 tsp.
