Coffee Glazed Macadamia Nuts

Everybody in my family loves these. They are a great snack or treat. You can leave out the coffee for plain honey-glazed, but I think they're better this way. My neighbor couldn't get enough of the honey-glazed though.
1/4 cup double strength decaf espresso
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
4 cups raw macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine first four ingredients well. Add macadamias and toss to coat thoroughly. Put on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, stirring about every five minutes during the cooking. Remove from oven when lightly toasted. Stir on the baking sheet as they cool. Place in a jar in the refrigerator for storage. They are fine at room temperature for a few hours, but the coating does start to soften. They do stick together in the fridge, but can be loosened with a spoon or knife.


  1. Wow! These look SO good! I just had a quick question..I read on the btvc website that decaf anything is not legal. Do you guys do ok with them?

  2. Personally, I have no problem with decaf espresso, but coffee (whether decaf or not) does bother me.

  3. These look delicious! I can't wait to try them.
