One of December's recipes for French Fridays with Dorie are sweet and spicy cocktail nuts. I really shouldn't make spicy nuts. It is so difficult for me to stay away from them. How many could you eat?
It is a simple recipe. Mix up some sugar, salt, chili powder, cinnamon and cayenne. Moisten some nuts with egg whites and then coat with the spice mixture. Put them a cookie sheet, and bake until dry.
I like spicy nuts. I have a recipe that I like a little more that uses fresh cracked pepper in place of the chili powder. Maybe this Christmas I should try different spicy nut recipes and give them away as gifts. And out of each recipe, I will only eat three. Or not.
