We have had a lot of holiday parties this year. I have sort of mixed feelings about homemade hostess gifts, but I have the best recipe for sweet-hot spiced nuts that is worth sharing. It is really good and really easy.
I also had a bunch of little metal cannisters that I had been saving for something that turned out to be just the right thing for nuts. So I printed out the recipe on a little card, calligraphed the recipe and our names, taped the card on the cannister and tied it all up with a nice bow... an easy, cute holiday hostess gift.
