Nuts for nuts!

Sure, these nuts are super as a snack on their own, but we love using them in a variety of recipes, too.Here are our faves.

Party pretzel crunch mix

This crowd-pleaser is perfect for pool parties, movie nights under the stars, BBQs, and beyond. Even better? It’s super easy to make. Simply mix together Compliments Pretzel Sticks, your favourite crisp rice and wheat cereals, and Unsalted Deluxe Mixed Nuts. Make a big batch using equal amounts of each. You can always customize it to your taste, adding more deluxe nuts as desired.

GORP, reinvented

We’ve gone ahead and revamped the recipe for “Good Old Raisins and Peanuts” with gourmet additions that go together like the sun and the beach. Mix together equal amounts of Compliments Unsalted Mixed Nuts, Compliments Raisins or Compliments Dried Cranberries, dried apricots (or mango!) and salted seeds like pumpkin and/or sunflower. For a treat, toss in candy-coated chocolate or Compliments Chocolate Chips. This energy-packed snack will be a hit from road trips to hikes to any other adventure the summer holds.

Deluxe trail mix bars

These are the kind of snack bars your gang will love: sweet and salty, crunchy and chewy, packed with hunger-halting ingredients – and easy to make. In a measuring glass, melt 1/3 cup honey and 3 tbsp peanut butter in the microwave, then stir until smooth. Pour mixture over a large bowl with 1½ cups each Compliments Deluxe Mixed Nuts and Compliments Toasted Puffed Wheat Cereal, 1/3 cup semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, ¼ cup each dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds, and 3 tbsp flax or chia seeds. Gently toss until mixed. Scrape the mixture into an 8-inch baking pan lined with parchment paper and mist with cooking Spray, pressing evenly with the bottom of the measuring cup. Refrigerate until set, about 2 or 3 hours. Cut into bars. TIP: Prefer balls to bars? Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls before refrigerating.
