Nuts are a favorite snack around our house during the holidays — or any day, for that matter. I make roasted nuts for Scout campouts for my son, game day and tailgating munchies, holiday appetizers or snacks, dessert and salad toppings, or just for me when I am working around the house, and to top salads and desserts. There is nothing easier to make or that pleases a crowd at my house more than roasted nuts. Why not make one, or a bunch, of these delicious roasted nut nibbles for the holidays or for a nibble right now?
