Toasted Coconut Nuts Recipe by Nicole @ www.Confectionalism.com

It's officially Summer! With all the fun, family, and friend activities we are all going to enjoy, It's good to have a few go-to recipes that are fun and easy. I always love introducing new and delicious snacks to company and house guests. It's a great conversation starter and a perfect way to curb hunger cravings between meals.

These are a wonderful, summery twist on the toasted candied nuts you smell wafting from booths at fall festivals. You can use any variety of nuts you'd like here. I personally love using almonds and pecans in this recipe. The coconut compliments the nutty flavors very well, and your kitchen will be oozing with a delicious toasted coconut nuts aroma! Versatile and tasty, you can also throw a handful of these on a crisp fresh salad as a crunchy delicious topping! Warning: these toasty tropical morsels can be difficult to share!
