    Mixed Candied Nuts-the perfect holiday snack for guests and gift giving!

    Welcome A Dash of Sanity! I love this time of year with the snow that falls here in Colorado, the Starbucks holiday cups, decorations, time with my family and friends and all the delicious smells and food that come from my kitchen. This recipe for Mixed Candied Nuts makes the house smell like cinnamon french toast. I love it. I sort of wish there was some sort of candle the smelled like candied nuts, I would burn it all year long.

    What I love most about these Mixed Candied Nuts is that they add a gorgeous touch to any holiday spread and make fantastic gifts. Put these in a mason jar, seal them up with a lid, tie a ribbon around the jar, and you have a gift that everyone will love and devour.

    These are simple to make and ready to bake in 5 minutes, so you will have no problem throwing this recipe together. What is also great about this recipe is it’s versatility. You can add some pumpkin seeds, take out a nut that you aren’t fond of, or replace one nut with another type of nut that you like. My husband would take out all the peanuts and just have almonds, cashews and pecans. But I love candied peanuts so I always make this recipe with them.
