Warm Spiced Nuts

I like to set out bowls of spiced nuts when hosting holiday parties. Sometimes I stir in M&M's to make it a sweet and salty snack. —Jill Matson, Zimmerman, Minnesota

    I served these along side a charcuterie board at Christmas and everyone raved about them. The only changed I made was increasing the cayenne since we like heat. I will definitely make them again.

    Using egg white mixed with a little water and hand beaten until frothy gives the nuts a nicer crispiness than using butter. (Two large egg whites and two tablespoons of water for four cups of nuts.
