We only have a few days left til Thanksgiving, so everyday, I am going to try to post some quick favorites.
I used cashews, walnuts, Brazil nuts, and almonds, but feel free to use whatever mix of nut you like. These are a bit spicy, but my three and four year old girls loved them.
This recipe is adapted from Martha Stewart’s, Spiced Nuts recipe. These are a terrific holiday, as well as everyday treat. Your family and friends will enjoy snacking on these at your next get together.
