Recipe:Candied Mixed Nuts

Just in time for the holidays!!!I like to do these when the weather starts to get a bit chilly cause they remind me of Winter in New York City.

You'll Need:

1-2 Cups of you favorite nut/s
1/4-1/2- stick of butter
1/2-3/4 cups- light brown sugar
1-2 tblsps.- Corn syrup (light/dark)
A tsp. each of your favorite spice- ei: cinnamon,nutmeg,clove,etc.

First Put the nuts in a good skillet pan and toast for about 5 min. over Med. heat. Once they've warmed up a bit add the brown sugar and the corn syrup. Bring up the temperature a little, allow the sugar to melt and coat the nuts. After a few minutes the syrup should start to bubble, at this point slowly incorporate the butter into the pan then reduce heat to low. As soon as you finish blending the butter add your spices, stirring constantly for even distribution. Finally transfer the mixture to a baking sheet lined with wax/parchment paper and allow to cool.ENJOY.
