I like to eat this nuts at footballs games or when we watch a night time movie together on the couch.. These are cuddling treat snacks for me and my boyfriend..But, remember any mixture of nuts can be used. Whole almonds, pistachios or macadamia nuts are also wonderful in this sugar spice mix.
Heat oven 350 F. Spray 15x10x1 inch pan with cooking spay. In large bowl, beat sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, water and egg whites with electric beater on high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is frothy. With rubber spatula, fold in nuts until evenly coated. Spread mixture evenly in pan.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes. stirring occasionally, til nuts are toasted and fragrant. Cool completely on pan. Transfer to large bowl and stir in candies. Store in a tightly covered container.
