Roasted Nut Snack

Better Homes and Gardens

Any nuts can be spruced up for the Christmas holidays with a seasoning mix. Here are four options that you can make to create a variety of appetizing coatings.

Spiced Walnuts

Stevia In The Raw®

Chefs native to India call the warm, aromatic blend of spices used to flavor of these nuts garam masala. At some supermarkets, you can find it, ready-made, on the spice shelf. Enjoy these crisp nuts as a snack, serve them with cocktails and wine, or chop them coarsely and sprinkle on oatmeal or a spinach salad.

Sweet and Spicy Pecans

Better Homes and Gardens

These yummy pecans are super for snacking, but they also make wonderful holiday or hostess gifts. Why use cane sugar? Cane sugar has a lower melting point than the more common beet sugar, which makes cane sugar better for candied glazes.
