Sugar and Spice Nuts



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.
