Sugar & Spice and....NUTS!

Today's Gifty is SO ridiculously easy, however it is delicious and most people adore them! We are gonna make Sugar & Spice Nuts. These are similar to the candied nuts you get from Vendors, however mine aren't quite as sweet not as heavily coated. You won't need much for this project, so lets get started!

Grab the following ingredients: Sugar, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Clove, Salt, Egg White, and 3 cups of a plain unsalted nut(s) of your choice. I will post the actual recipe at the end of my post.

You will mix all the ingredients together in one bowl in then spread on a greased jelly roll pan.

 Bake in oven for 1 hour at 250* and then let cool COMPLETELY before removing. Scoop some of these little guys into a jar, add some embellishments and you have a yummy gift that everyone I have ever given them to LOVED. As in asked for the recipe! 

The recipe for the Nuts is as follows:

1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Cloves
1 Large Egg White
3 Cups unsalted Nuts. ( I used Pecans, Almonds, & Peanuts this time. However I normally use Cashews instead of Peanuts. Honestly my husband and I think a thing of nothing but Pecans would be divine!)

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl and spread on greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 250* for 1 hour and let cool completely.  Note: NO matter how much you grease the pan these guys STICK, you have to kinda scrape them off. If you try this with one of those mats and have better results PLEASE let me know!

And that my friends is IT! So easy, so yummy, and so fun to give. Make sure you leave a comment if you want to win the jar I made last night that is in the picture. I am giving these to my kids Awana teachers, and our Schwans guy:)

Those do look tasty. Joel mentioned just the other day that we should give a gift to our Schwan's guy- we are on a first name basis! I like him a lot better than our postman.:)

I think Grams would think these are fun! She is eating more nuts now than ever before! She doesn't blog so she can't figure out how to post comments, so I am posting this one for her. I hope she wins because she would be so excited to get this fine gift from one of her favorite grandchildren :)
