We made these nuts tonight for our really fun Wish List Event. It started out as someone else’s recipe, but I modified it a little to become my own…so here it is!
Spiced Nuts and Pretzels
1 pound plain/raw mixed nuts (roughly equal portions of almonds, pecans, and walnuts)
1 egg white, room temperature
1 tablespoon water also room temperature
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
Combine salt, spices, and sugar in small bowl. Whisk egg white and water together in mixing bowl until stiff. Pour over nuts and stir to coat. Sprinkle spice mixture over nuts and stir to coat evenly.
Spread nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every ten minutes or so. Remove from oven and let cool. When completely cool, break the nuts apart with your fingers and store in a tightly sealed container.
