Make a sweet and spicy snack mix by coating mixed nuts in a mixture of sugar, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and Parmesan cheese.  This portable snack mix is perfect for tailgating or holiday entertaining.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 300° F. Line 2 large baking sheets with foil or parchment. Grease lightly and set aside. Position a rack in center of oven. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Gradually add the sugar, beating to a loose, meringuelike texture. Beat in the Old Bay Seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cayenne, and salt. Add the nuts and butter and stir well to coat evenly. Add the Parmesan and mix again. Divide the nuts between the baking sheets, spreading evenly in a single layer. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes to a golden brown (do not allow the nuts to darken too much), rotating the sheets during cooking for even roasting. Line a work surface with foil or parchment. After removing the nuts from oven, immediately slide them onto the foil or parchment. Cool completely. Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

Just won for these in a Superbowl appetizer contest at work, very very good and addictive. They could be too spicy for some, you could use less cayenne if your crowd likes milder flavors.

This is a fantastic recipe. You can tweak the spices/flavors to your taste but I usually like to up all the spices. The butter and parmesan make this unique and sooo tasty. Try it! You'll love it!

Will make again. When they say watch for browning.. remember the bottom. They didn't seem too brown on top but the bottom was burnt. My mistake.
