Cinnamon Roasted Nuts make a great holiday gift treat for those you love! Coated with a cinnamon sugar coating and baked until a crispy sugary layer is formed on the outside, these addictive treats will quickly become everyone’s favorite!
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!
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 allrecipes.com and the only change I made to the recipe was to use a mix of nuts instead of just almonds.
