It is Christmas Eve!


The house full, the fridge is stocked, the snow is falling and the frantic running around has begun (umm, actually that has been going on for the last two weeks!).


We are prepping dinner, making chex mix, wrapping gifts and constantly snacking!


Yes, Snacks. We need lots and lots of snacks!


With so many people in the house we need something everyone can snack on between meals. Something healthy to balance out all the umm, cream, butter, and chocolate!

These glazed nut are the perfect thing! Nice and sweet from the maple syrup with a nice and fun kick of espresso to keeps us going all night long! These will please everyone from meat eaters all the way to the vegans!

    I tried the recipe without the espresso power because I didn’t have any on hand… and it was still delicious! Do you know how long these will keep for? I want to make them ahead of time to give as gifts but also want them to be fresh. Thanks!

    Unfortunately this didn’t work for me in the proportions provided in the recipe. Even after following all the steps, the nuts came out very wet. At room temperature in a gift jar a few days later they are still wet and sticky which has now made the nuts soft and soggy.
    However, still 4 stars as it smelled divine and with some adaptations, I’m sure it’ll work out much better for me next time ☺️

  3. I am going to put this in a holiday box for those who want a break from the sweet cookies. Would instant coffee work? Or does it have to be espresso powder

    1. Hey Elizabeth,
      I haven’t tested this, but I think that should work! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan
