Reviews for Seasoned Mixed Nuts
"Wow! These nuts are amazing. My husband requests them all the time. I'm even going to experiment with the spices in the future. Perhaps cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cocoa powder. They make a great gift too. Sure beats paying for the overpriced specialty nuts in the store."
"Thought these very very good. Could I toast some almonds and add them in place of pecans? Hubby loves almonds while pecans do not rate high on his list?"
"Excellent,they were a huge hit.Will definitely will make again."
"why don't you just print it out?"
"I would like to have the recipe in writing for next time I want to make them"
