Sweet and Spicy Mixed Nuts

This is the perfect go-to snack for that special movie night, family game night, or just to have on hand when guests drop by. Sweet, spicy, delicious and a little addicting!

Sweet and Spicy Mixed Nuts

1 c. cashews (whole, unsalted)
1 c. almonds (whole, unsalted)
1 c. walnuts (halves)
1 c. pecans (halves)
¼ c. Gainey Vineyard Roasted Chestnut Grapeseed Oil
1 Tbsp. butter
½ c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. ground cayenne pepper
¼ tsp. ground cumin

Preheat oven to 350°.

Pour all the nuts into large bowl.

Melt butter in small sauce pan over medium low heat. Stir in roasted chestnut grapeseed oil. Add sugar and stir until completely dissolved.

Add sea salt, cayenne and cumin and stir well (I like to use a whisk for this).

Remove from heat and pour mixture over nuts. Toss to coat all the nuts well.

Spread mixture evenly on baking sheet. Bake approximately 15-18 minutes (your nose will tell you when they’re done). Enjoy!
