Mixed nuts are a staple at holiday parties and gatherings. I love to serve them because they are healthy, and keep 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, I much prefer to make my own. This is a fantastic recipe that your guests are sure to love!
Candied Mixed Nuts And Cranberry Mix
2 cups unsalted cashews*
2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts*
2 cups whole pecans*
1 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1-1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites
1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 300F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine nuts. Set aside.
In a medium bowl,beat egg white with whisk until foamy. Add sugar, spices, and salt.
Pour egg white-sugar mixture over nuts. Gently fold until nuts are evenly coated. Divide nuts between prepared baking sheets.
Bake candied nuts at 300F 30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once every 15 minutes.
Cool nuts completely on baking sheet. Once cooled, break nuts apart into clusters and combine with dried cranberries.
Store snack mix in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
