Well, that's just nuts!

My neighbor gave me another huge bag of plain almonds :) so I've been researching different recipes for flavoring them up.  Tonight I came across on that allowed for sweet and spice! The specialty spices have the links to the store, make sure you tell them Ms Fish sent you!

1 T Butter
1/4 c Sugar
2 T Corn Syrup
1/2 t McCormick Molasses Bacon Grillmates
1/2 t Garlic powder
1/4 t Applewood Smoke Powder (Spice Agent)
1/4 t Bold Smoked Salt (Spice Agent)
2 cups nuts (I used Almonds of course)

Preheat the oven to 350.  Meanwhile gather all of the ingredients...this goes quick, hence the lack of pictures!  Put all in a heavy sauce pot (except the nuts) and bring to a boil.  Dump in the 2 cups of nuts and stir to mix then put on a silpat mat on a cookie sheet and put in the oven!

Bake 12-15 minutes stirring once.  Once the timer goes off pull the silpat mat off the sheet an put on a wire rack for the nuts to cool, at least 45 minutes.

Then you can break apart the chunks and enjoy!
