They’re really easy to make and only require four ingredients, most of which you probably have around the house already.

But be warned… these disappear in no time at all. We’re talking under five minutes when my family is around.

    Sounds like a great idea!! I had actually been researching recipes for spiced nuts to make as an appetizer for our family get-together tomorrow, but then I nixed the idea and went with my husband’s favorite buffalo chicken dip instead haha! ;)
