#SecretRecipeClub ~ Spiced Sugared Nuts


Welcome to the November, Group D, reveal day for Secret Recipe Club! I hope you will take a moment to visit the Secret Recipe Club if you've never heard of it before - it is a wonderful group of food bloggers who are given a secret assignment of another member's blog each month and our goal is to pick ANYTHING from their blog to make and post about on our designated reveal day.


I missed out on the month of October's SRC reveal due to some health issues my son is going through right now (if you haven't already heard, or want to see how he's doing you can find lots of updates on the facebook page I started for him: https://www.facebook.com/BlueAndRedForKent). Kent actually turns 17 years old today and will be spending this birthday in the hospital. I promised him an Oreo cake and some pizza from Stonecreek Pizza (his favorite local pizza place)! Happy birthday to my turkey baby.


This month I was lucky enough to get the chance to visit http://www.foodbabylife.com/ for my assigned blog. How do I pick between Katharine Hepburn Brownies, Chicken Noodle Soup, Best Ever Custard, Raisin Swirl Bread, Caramel Bars, Peanut Sesame Noodles, Roasted Pumpkin and Apple Soup, Easy Pumpkin Soup, Pizza Pasta, Chicken Pie, Peanut Butter Ice Cream, or a Classic Custard Tart...! But, then I was thinking about my Cheese Tray I was working on last week and while I was browsing Susan's recipe index I stumbled over spiced sugared nuts. Bingo! I had been thinking about making a batch of homemade candied nuts to go on my cheese tray, and these - with a touch of spice - sounded just perfect to me.

The first night I made these I had a hard time stopping myself from eating the whole tray. It's a good thing I did stop, or I might have found myself very ill on the floor not long after. They are very tasty and easy to munch on - perfect to have in a bowl on the counter next to drinks, on a cheese tray, or anywhere else you want to place them for a lovely Holiday (or anytime!) appetizer.

Spiced Sugared Nuts from Food.Baby.Life

Ingredients
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
400 grams assorted, unsalted mixed nuts
1 eggwhite, lightly whisked

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (350F). Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Place the nuts and eggwhite in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add the spice mixture to the nut mixture and mix well.
  2. Line a large baking tray with a sil pat. Spread the nut mixture out in a single layer and bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and cool completely on the tray. Break up any large clusters. 
  3. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for a few days.

  1. These nuts look amazing! Better keep them away from me or else I'm pretty sure I'd easy the whole batch! Haha

    I had your blog this month and it was great to have the opportunity to look through it and all the delicious recipes that you have! I made your mushroom sausage ragu and it was really tasty! Definitely will be making it again!

    I'm sorry to hear about your son - I hope he recovers quickly! Happy birthday to him and I hope he enjoys his cake and pizza!
