I have to admit this post was inspired by a facebook ad from a company selling sriracha cashews. I wanted some but I knew that it would probably be pretty easy to make my own, and I was right. I found this recipe at an amazing blog by fellow (though far more accomplished!) designer / food enthusiast Jennifer Chong. These honey and sriracha cashews have a nice subtle sweet and spicy roasted taste without overpowering the natural buttery goodness of the cashew.
These chocolate covered bananas only take a few minutes to prepare (plus a half hour to set up in the freezer) and they are a delicious yet healthy treat. You can use any kind of chocolate, bars or chips, and you could also replace the pistachios with some other kind of nut; however I think salted pistachios compliment the chocolate and banana wonderfully.
