Hot Sweet Nuts

I have no idea where this weekend went, but it sure is gone.  My Honey has switched shifts and is now working 6AM to 6PM….much better on my humor.  He ended up with 3 days off because of slick roads and wrecked trucks, but all is back to something you could call normal.

Once again this recipe is from BrazenBites.  She used to make them for cocktail time in Humboldt County and I really enjoyed them.  Aaahhhh…Humboldt County…but I digress.  Anyway… think these are just the right combination of hot and sweet.  I made a bunch last year and sent them to my Honey in the sand and he loves em.  And of course….they are perfect with a cocktail.


1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

3 Tbsp water

2 cups mixed nuts…deshelled naturally

Combine first 4 ingredients and boil 2 minutes.  Add nuts and toss to cover.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes on baking sheet covered, sprayed or however you do it.  Let cool and enjoy.

I wrapped up a handful to stick in the cookie exchange box for a little extra.  The weather had warmed up and of course we got snow, but they way the stars were shinning so bright at 5AM and it was still and beautiful, the day promises to be a pretty one.  However, as the girls got on the bus, the wind came up and the temperature dropped (always does about sunup), so we shall see what the day brings.
