Recipe Notes

  • Cool the nuts completely before putting into jars or airtight containers.
  • Change up the spices to fit your family's tastes.
  • You could do all pecans, almonds, cashews or your favorite nut instead of mixed nuts.

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly butter it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine butter, sugar, corn syrup, spices and salt in a 2-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add nuts. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and spread nuts in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, stirring once during bake time, until golden in color and bubbly. Remove and cool on the baking sheet 30 to 40 minutes.
