Sweet and Spicy mixed nuts are a favorite snack of mine! They’re so simple to make and so flavorful. The sweet and spicy combo is crazy delicious. I like to use mixed nuts for this but feel free to use 4 cups of whichever nuts you like!
These make a really cute gift, packaged in cellophane bags or in a nice candy dish. Make a big batch and you’ll get several gifts out of it!
1 egg white
4 cups raw mixed nuts, unsalted
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tbsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk the egg white with a tablespoon of water until the egg white is foamy.
Add in the nuts and spices and mix well.
Pout the nuts onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes take out the nuts and using a spatula stir them around. Lower the over to 200 degrees and continue to bake the nuts for another 30 minutes.
