Soften ¼ cup butter and add Worcestershire sauce, sizzling sauce, garlic and onion powders, candy or smoked paprika, salt and pepper till it tastes as spicy and savory as you want. Toss the butter with the cereal combine to coat and bake on two parchment-lined sheet pans at 250 levels, stirring each quarter-hour, till crisp and darker, about an hour.
Honey Mustard Social gathering Combine: Observe the method for the Spicy Social gathering Combine, however stir equal elements honey and Dijon mustard into the melted butter. (Or attempt different sweet-and-savory combos, corresponding to miso and maple syrup, brown sugar and chile powder or coconut flakes and Thai curry paste.)
Hot Honey Mixed Nuts: Soften butter with honey, red-pepper flakes and salt. Toss with a mixture of complete nuts and seeds (like pumpkin, millet, sunflower, quinoa or sesame), then bake on a parchment-lined sheet pan at 325 levels till cheesy and toasted, 20 to 25 minutes. Proper out of the oven, sprinkle with salt and turbinado sugar for crunch.
Coconut-Chile Cashews: Brighten up cashews with Tejal Rao’s all-purpose blend of coconut, chile and garlic: Soften dried chiles de árbol in sizzling water when you mash dried, shredded coconut and garlic with a mortar and pestle. Mash within the chile. Toast cashews in coconut oil in a skillet with black mustard seeds and sliced curry leaves, when you have them, then add the coconut paste and stir till dry and aromatic. Season with salt.
Pepperoni Pizza Almonds: Coat almonds and sliced pepperoni in olive oil or the oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes, garlic powder, dried oregano or fennel seeds, red-pepper flakes and salt. Bake at 325 levels till nuts are toasted and pepperoni is crisp, 10 to fifteen minutes. In the previous couple of minutes, add oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes to crisp.
