Coffee Spiced Nuts

The holidays are quickly approaching! My family, always makes a big batch of roasted spiced nuts for the holidays and by the end of the night they are all gone! This year we are adding our favorite AK-47 espresso blend to our recipe to really add some smokey flavor to the nuts. Like our coffee rub for meat (see here) the coffee mixed with the spices adds a new level of flavor! You can even used pre-used grounds for this recipe!
