Mixed nuts are a staple at holiday parties and gatherings. We love to serve these Candied Mixed Nuts And Cranberry Mix because they are healthy and it keeps guests from getting too hungry as they sip drinks and mingle. Instead of just putting out a bowl of sugar-filled store-bought candied nuts, we much prefer to make our own.


This is a fantastic recipe that your guests are sure to love!
