Cinnamon Roasted Nuts

I you love the warm, sweet, nutty smell you get wafting from certain candy shops in the mall, then you will love making this recipe…..and your home will smell awesome in return!  My first experience with these nuts was during a visit to my brother’s house in Indianapolis and a trip to the mall.  Back then I never thought about making them but now that I’ve done it, I realize just how easy it is!

Cinnamon Roasted Nuts

This is a great last minute gift recipe that doesn’t take a whole lot of effort.  I definitely will be making them again when I want to give a gift out to someone special!  The recipe came from and the only change I made to the recipe was to use a mix of nuts instead of just almonds.

  5. […] for future use. They can be frozen for future use so they don’t spoil. I like to make these Cinnamon Roasted Nuts whenever I have some extra egg whites hanging […]
