Spiced Nuts for Dad

June 13, 2011

Normally, we think of spiced nuts as a holiday treat but I enjoy them any time of the year.  This Father's Day my own Dad has asked me to make them for him.  You can use whatever nuts you or your Dad likes.  My personal favorites are pecans, cashews, and peanuts.  If you have multiple people to give gifts to, make a big batch of these spiced nuts and you're set.  Place them in cellophane bags with ribbon and you have a simple and delicious gift ready for Dad, Grandpa, or Uncle.
