As you can see, some of them got a little "done." I did have the problem of the spices burning on the bottom of the pan. They had to be stirred every 8 minutes. So I set my timer for 8 minutes and stirred them. But then I forgot to keep track of how many times I had stirred and I think they were in for 8 minutes too long. Anyway, when they first came out of the oven, they tasted a little chewy, but they crisped up after cooling.
The people at the party liked them. (Yay!) Some changes I would make next time include using less butter, omitting the Worcestershire sauce (I just don't see what that did for it), using less chili powder, and using a lot of Old World Seasoning. Here is my amended recipe:
Spicy Mixed Nuts
4 cups mixed nuts
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp Old World Seasoning (?)
Bake at 275 for 30 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes (and keeping track of how long they've been in!) Please note: I have not tried this recipe as I have written it. I would prob start with less OWS and taste it before adding more. And it may be that with the OWS, you would need less salt and garlic powder, since it contains these things. So, I would start with just the OWS and then add things to taste.
If I try this again, I will add a comment about how it turned out. Please comment if you try it or have made a similar recipe.
