I make up double batches of these delicious nuts during the holidays and for parties - they go very fast!

Made these spicy nuts again - only this time I didn't burn them! I used about 5 cups of salted mixed nuts; therefore I omitted the additional salt from the recipe. After they cooled, I broke them up as instructed but some of them still felt a bit sticky -- so I sprinkled on some chili powder and a little bit of extra sugar, then tossed them together. These are addicting - I love the spicy/sweet flavor of these nuts!! Thanks again, evelyn/athens! -M =)
