Dinner’s not ready and I’m snacking on these…not good!
Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts
1 pound mixed raw unsalted nuts
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch of cayenne
Whisk the egg white, water and salt in a bowl. Put the nuts in and toss to coat. Dump nuts into a sieve, place the sieve over the bowl and let it drain for a couple of minutes.
Meanwhile, combine sugar and spices together. Lift up sieve, pour liquid out of the bowl and dump the nuts back in. Pour sugar mixture in and mix to coat nuts.
Pour nuts on to a parchment-lined tray and bake for 30-35 minutes in a 300 degrees F oven till brown. Remove from oven, let nuts cool slightly before breaking them up. Store in an airtight container when cooled.
