Spiced Nut Mix

 Spiced Nut Mix
When we were newlyweds, our first Christmas was pretty lean. I usually make presents, but that year I had no idea what I could afford to put together. A good friend gave me a special gift—this recipe and a sack of ingredients. I think of her every time I stir up this mix. —Patti Holland, Parker, Colorado
