With the holidays around the corner I am always looking for things to serve guests, or to give as gifts. When you walk through the mall, and go past the kiosks with the spiced nuts it always smells amazing! I love to taste the samples they hand out, but they are kinda pricey.
So, I decided to make some of my own. These are Spicy, but not so spicy that you don’t want to eat them. Mix in some crasins and you have a perfect snack for on the coffee table when you have company. Serve with some spiced cider and you will have a nice get together.
These are naturally gluten free, and you can use margarine to make them dairy free. Wrap these up in a nice container and they make a great gift!
