    Spiced Cocktail Nuts from Giada De Laurentiis

    Ingredients:

    • Vegetable cooking spray
    • 2 egg whites
    • 2 cups roasted and salted almonds
    • 2 cups roasted and salted cashew nuts
    • 2 cups walnut halves
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons Madras curry powder
    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Directions:
    1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet, liberally, with vegetable cooking spray. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy. Add the nuts and stir until coated. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, curry powder, cumin, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, cardamom, and cinnamon. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the nuts and toss until coated. Arrange the nuts in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes until golden and fragrant. Cool for 1 hour.
    3. Using a metal spatula, remove the nuts from the baking sheet. Break the nuts into bite- sized pieces and place in serving bowls.
