I’m a big believer in providing so many food options to my guests that they feel like they are eating 24/7.
If you couldn’t tell by the fact that I have an entire website full of recipes, food is my love language! So if you come to my house, you better bet I’m going to show you my love with a deluge of tasty treats.
That includes the obvious meals and appetizers, but it also means that I always have something “snacky” out when I have people over. Preferably multiple bowls of said snack in various spots throughout the house—I’d hate it if someone got the munchies between the couch and the kitchen and there wasn’t a snack available!
This minefield of snackage is especially important when alcohol is involved—you just can’t serve people booze without having something crunchy for them to nibble on (and hopefully help them avoid a hangover).
These Maple Rosemary Bar Nuts are my hangover-preventing bar snack of choice! I make a huge batch (like, really huge), and divide it up over multiple bowls sprinkled throughout the party area. No snack emergencies in my house!
These bar nuts are a little bit salty, a little bit sweet, and a little bit savory. Oh, and totally crazy easy to make. If you make them for your next party, you’ll see people start to congregate around the bowl—they’re that good.
This recipe makes enough to feed a small army. Feel free to halve or even quarter it for a more manageable amount, but you might not want to. They are way addictive, and they store well—I keep mine in zip-top bags in the freezer—so you might want to make a giant batch and munch on them for the rest of the year (or even give some as gifts). Enjoy!
