Ingredients

For the nuts:

  • 3 cups mixed nuts I used 1 cup each almonds, pecans and walnuts*
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons Homemade Chai Spice Mix plus more for dusting
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the platter:

  • Boar's Head Dark Chocolate Dessert Hummus
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi
  • Orange slices
  • Dehydrated banana or banana chips
  • Pretzels
  • Chai Spiced Maple Candied Nuts

Instructions 

Prepare the nuts:

  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat mat and set aside.
  • Place the maple syrup, coconut sugar, orange juice, zest and salt in a large saucepan over medium low heat and stir.  Cook until the sugar melts, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the nuts and stir to coat.  Stir constantly until the mixture is no longer sticky (it will appear dry and crystallized) and has completely coated the nuts (about 5-7 minutes).
  • Pour the nuts onto the prepared baking sheet, toss with another 1/2 teaspoon chai spice mix if desired, and spread into a single layer.  Cool completely for about 15 minutes.

Assemble the party platter:

  • Place the Boar's Head Dark Chocolate Hummus in a serving bowl and place in the center of your platter. Decoratively arrange the fruit, dehydrated banana, pretzels and nuts around the dip.  Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Use toasted nuts for maximum flavor!  I love using Trader Joe's pre-toasted nuts or toast them yourself in a large skillet over medium low heat, stirring often, until golden and fragrant (about 8 minutes).
  • Store nuts in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks.
  • Substitute the ingredients on this platter with any assortment of your favorite fresh fruit, dried fruit, crackers, etc.
