Warm Spiced Cashews


  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/3 cup roasted, unsalted cashews
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a medium rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat peanut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, five-spice powder, cumin, black pepper, red pepper, and water to pan. Stir until sugar dissolves and mixture begins bubbling. Add cashews to pan; cook 2 minutes or until well coated, stirring constantly.
  3. Spread cashews evenly on prepared baking sheet, using 2 forks to separate them and leaving as much room as possible between nuts. Sprinkle nuts evenly with salt. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes or until fragrant. Cool slightly on pan before serving.
