After several years of casual searching, I’ve finally stumbled upon a recipe that makes exactly the kind of cinnamon buns I like without requiring a lot of effort or ingredients I don't always have on hand.
This is how we make chai at home. The key is the whole milk, which adds richness, and the relatively large amount of sugar. Sugar really brings out the flavour of the spices, and in India, chai is almost always served very sweet.
These spiced nuts are an easy, low-effort, cocktail snack. Toast nuts, mix topping, combine, let cool. That’s it. Less than 10 minutes start to finish (perfect if you’re looking for something light to serve with holiday party drinks).
