Moorish’, is the perfect word to describe this sweet, salty, crunchy and very tasty mixture! So easy to whip up or have prepared for when guests pop over this holiday season.
Get creative, use whatever nuts are your favourite or already in your cupboard or add some cinnamon for a hint of Christmas. Feel free to add some dried fruit or your favourite chocolate cut into chunks once the mixture is cooled.
This Sweet and Salty Nut Mix is a great one to make for drinks with friends or to add to a grazing board for something a little different. It will not disappoint!
