And I love trail mix. All the textures, the salty-and-sweet aspect. I can never stop at a handful.
Marrying candied nuts with trail mix was one of the best, and most dangerous, kitchen decisions I’ve had lately. Can you say addiciting. Whoa. But it makes great gifts and people love it.
I used a combo of pecans, walnuts, and almonds. I love using pecans when making candied nuts because the cinnamon-and-sugar coating really seeps into all the nookies and crannies and adheres beautifully.
My 7-year old hand model promptly picked out most of chocolate chips. I’ve taught her well.
