Pumpkin Spiced Cocktail Nuts ~ Savory Simple

How much can you really say about cocktail nuts? They’re tasty and they have a silly name. Seriously, though, you guys are going to love my nuts!

These pumpkin spiced cocktail nuts are perfect for fall and holiday parties. Put them out at Thanksgiving as a snack while people are getting their drink on! I decided not to go overly sweet or spicy with the recipe but you can adjust the spice quantities to taste. A bit more maple syrup, a bit of cayenne pepper…  customize your nuts! I used Trader Joe’s Fancy Mixed Nuts, which are a combination of cashews, almonds, pecans, brazil nuts and filberts. In my opinion, the pecans and cashews were the most addicting but this will work with any combination of nuts. I also used Penzy’s Pumpkin Pie Spice but you can easily make your own fall spice mixture from ingredients such as cinnamon, fresh nutmeg and allspice. Enjoy!
