Game Day Spiced Nuts

Need a new idea for game day finger food? Here is a quick crowd pleaser! Watch them disappear!

These spicy, smoky, sweet nuts are absolutely addicting!  The key is to find a great hot smoked paprika.  I use one that my friend created from spices imported from Spain.  You do not need to get that fancy, but it is the dominant flavor and I recommend good quality paprika!  Honestly, these are a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but worth the effort.  Sometimes they come out a little sticky, but I don't mind that.  You can always add more of the brown sugar/paprika mixture at the end if you want.  I kind of like them a little gooey.

And again, any flavor of jelly is delicious.  I also love the Ja-Ha in this recipe!



  • 1/3 cup Mrs. G's Hot Pepper Jelly
  • 1/2 Tablespoons hot smoked paprika (or to taste)
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or more) hot smoked paprika

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 6


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil or parchment and lightly spray with cooking oil.
  2. Place hot pepper jelly in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 45 seconds on high. Stir in paprika. Add mixed nuts and stir until coated evenly.
  3. Spread nut mixture in a single layer on pan.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes (ovens vary...they have to go about 15 minutes in my oven. You want them "praline-like" - just before they start to burn.
  5. Cool 5 minutes. Break up mixture.
  6. Combine brown sugar and paprika and sprinkle mixture over cooled nuts, stirring to combine. Store in airtight container.
