Spiced Almonds

I don’t know about y’all, but around here, the fall is a time for gatherings.

Dinner parties, church gatherings, get-togethers, there’s always something going on.

At many of these events, folks are asked to bring a little something to snack on.

Gone are the days of everyone bringing a casserole or entrée.

Now, you’re more likely to go to a party where there’s good wine paired with delicious nibbles so that the focus can be on fellowship rather than food.

Coming up with a yummy snack to take to a gathering can be just as difficult as making a full meal at times.

Here’s a hint, though.

Delicious snacks don’t have to be complicated!

In fact, they shouldn’t be.

The foundation of a snack that rocks is simple, quality ingredients.

If you focus on that, you can be sure that more folks at the party will enjoy your culinary contribution.

Oh, and then, if you can, bring whatever you make to the host in a mason jar.

Mason jars make everything more special!

Want to try your hand at making a crowd-pleasing snack to take to your upcoming fall shindigs?

I promise these spiced almonds will make your guests go nuts! 

Sorry. Y’all know I had to go there. Ha!
