Peanuts are a wonderful snack and what could be better than sweet savory spicy nuts to enjoy anytime. This easy recipe for maple chipotle roasted nuts is perfect as a snack or to make as an appetizer for when you have people over.
I made these nuts so that we could enjoy them during our picnic and that is why I put them on mason jars but since this has such a great presentation you could also use these peanut filled mason jars as a great hostess gift.

The combination of the sweetness caramelized maple paired with the slight smoky heat of the chipotle gives these roasted nuts a delicious taste that is addictive and the best part is that they are so easy to make.
