- 4 cups Planters Deluxe Mixed Nuts
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ cup white granulated sugar
- ¼ cup water
- 2 tbsp butter
- ¼ cup chopped milk or dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Heat sugar, water and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is completely melted.
Add mixed nuts to large bowl. Add in cayenne pepper and toss with nuts. Pour in melted butter mixture and stir until nuts are completely coated.
Place nuts onto baking sheet, in a single layer. Bake for about 15 minutes. Nuts should be sticky with coating. Gently move nuts off of baking sheet onto a clean surface to cool so that they do not stick to the sugar mixture pooled on the baking sheet. Let nuts cool before mixing in chopped chocolate and placing into gift jars or gift bags.
