5 Days of Gifts!..Day 2 Sweet and Spicy Nuts


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.


Allow the nuts to cool completely on the pan.  Enjoy!
