I used to make peanut butter balls as part of my regular Christmas baking but somewhere along the way, I got out of the habit. I always feel a bit like Lucy and Ethel in the classic candy factory episode of I Love Lucy when I make them, working as quickly as I can, getting chocolate on my fingers, etc.!
However, the end result was well worth it, as my husband absolutely loved these, refusing to share them with anyone else in the family and comparing them to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Food gifts are a wonderful way to show the important people in your life that you care, and they’re also easy to do in bulk so you can gift them to your neighbor, the mailman, add a jar to a basket headed for your aunt or dear friend across the country, send one to your grandma who insists you shouldn’t buy her anything, but you know she secretly loves it when you tuck goodies and snacks in with the requisite Christmas card and updated family photo for her. You know who I’m talking about.
These rosemary and honey roasted nuts are the perfect blend of sweet and salty, and they last for a few weeks rather than needing to be consumed immediately. You can use whatever mix of nuts you prefer, and these are a wonderful gift that are easy enough for children to make. Once the nuts have completely cooled, they can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for 3 weeks.
