Honey roasted nuts...

A super nutritious & yummy munch! Plus, gets done in a jiffy! What else could one as for in a snack, eh?.. ;)
You need:
a handful of almonds*
a handful of cashews*
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp chilly flakes**
salt to taste
*U could use any nuts - cashews, almonds, pistachios, peanuts - take ur pick! :)
**Skip the chilly flakes or add more according to taste
How to:
Roast the nuts(plain) in the oven/in a wok till crunchy. Take care to ensure that it does not burn. Stir constantly if you are using the wok. Keep aside.
In a wok, add the butter, honey, flakes on a low flame. Once this starts to bubble, add in the nuts and turn the flame on to high. Stir well to coat evenly till the syrup is absorbed. I added only a small pinch of salt since i used salted-butter.
Once the syrup is absorbed completely, transfer the nuts onto a plate, spreading evenly so that they do not stick together in a lump as they cool. You could store this in an air-tight container or gobble up right away! ;)
