Candied Spiced Nuts

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bayhill

I find these nuts very addicting. I really love the orange/spice combination. These don't last very long in my house, so I often have to double the recipe.

OMG! These were so easy! I did not have any oranges to zest, so I just replaced the water with good ol' oj. Even my girls, who don't like nuts, ate this "special candy" that mom made for New Year's Eve.
