I just made these cashews for our work Christmas party, and had to put the container in my car so I could stop munching on them! They are perfect for the holidays, and I plan on making a few batches to put in the little mason jars and include in my Christmas baskets. Everyone loves cashews, and these are salty, spicy, a little sweet, and absolutely delicious!

Meanwhile, combine the rosemary, pepper, sugar, salt and butter in a large bowl. Toss the warm nuts with the rosemary mixture until the nuts are completely coats.
