The Dining Diva’s Spicy Party Nuts

Makes 4 Cups

4 cups mixed nuts (whole almonds, pecan halves, cashews)
1 egg white
4 tsp dark brown sugar
1½ tsp salt (a bit less if using salted nuts)
½ tsp cayenne pepper

Spread nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 325°, stirring occasionally.

Remove from oven; cool slightly. Beat egg white until frothy. Add brown sugar, salt, cayenne and rosemary. Blend. Stir in nuts and coat well. Place nuts back on baking sheet and return to the oven.

Bake for about 15- 20 minutes or until golden. Cool and store in an airtight container. Yummy!
