Candied nuts are a fave for us. We like having them in the pantry all throughout the year, but they make for a fantastic snack during cocktail hour at holiday events or something to serve on charcuterie boards, or as a garnish on salads!
This recipe features our Taco culinary seasoning, showcasing fun and tasty ways you can use this seasoning in more than just tacos!
The anti-inflammatory properties in these nuts come from the omega 3 fatty acids in the walnuts and chia seeds. A diet high in omega 3's is important to support joint health and our nervous system. They are such a tasty and healthy treat, making this recipe an absolute must try!
