      I used 2 cans of planters mixed nuts which was about 6 cups give or take a nut. I wish I had used a bit more seasoning. I would have preferred more spice. I had some a few years back at christmas as a gift from a patient and was hoping for more bite. Next time. Other wise very good and extremely easy!

      I made these delicious nuts as a snack for our Thanksgiving guests. I used cashews and halved the recipe, as it makes quite a lot. Rather than using half an egg white, I went ahead and used a whole one, then just shook the nuts in a colander to drain the excess before tossing them with the sugar mixture. I used jumbo cashews that were already lightly salted, so I reduced the amount of salt. Everyone really enjoyed them--thanks for posting!
