I love spiced nuts and pumpkin spiced anything. So pumpkin spiced nuts are heavenly! I will definitely be making these again and using different nuts – pecans and almonds are definitely on my to-try list. These are so good and so easy to make. They would definitely be a hit at any holiday gathering or in any holiday goody bag.
Pumpkin Spiced Nuts
From Tasty Kitchen
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water
2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
3 Cups Nuts, chopped
In a sauce pan, mix the water and sugar to make a syrup. Stir over medium high heat until it boils. Mix in the pumpkin pie spice.
Add in the nuts and stir to coat.
Turn hear to medium and stir until all the moisture has evaporated. Crystals will start to form on on the nuts and it will get very thick.
Pour the nuts onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and allow to cool. You may need to break apart any clumps.
