MOst nuts are a bit salty, with some having more crunch and smokey overtones, such as almonds, while others are soft and sweet like hazlenuts and cashews. As with all multi-ingrediant dishes, search for a ballance.

If I were to make a nut mix, first, I would mix nuts and something similar from the grain family, such as sun chips. The nuts would include hull-less roasted peanuts, cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, and macadamia nuts. I would toss these with the sun chips and a bit of Lee & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce. I might even throw some crunch, broken prezels into the mix.

Another great mix would be to use various chocolate covered nuts, tossed with some of those hollow, cream-filled cookie roll-ups (can't remember what they're called off the top of my head) that come in canisters, and some yougurt covered nuts for color and flavor, maybe some M&M's too.

Hope that helps.

I'm planning a party, and would like to make the best party mix EVER!

I wanna come to a nutter party, Mittens!!!
(you're right about the smilies btw)

Try this:

CG Christmasy Nut Stuff That's Yummers
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup pecans, cashews, walnuts, or mixture, toasted*
PREPARATION:

Combine sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, butter, vanilla and water in saucepan. Cook stirring constantly, until a small amount dropped into cold water forms a soft ball, about 236° on a candy thermometer.


Stir in toasted nuts. Remove from heat and stir until no longer glossy. Pour into buttered baking sheet and spread thinly. Cool, and break into pieces. *To toast nuts, spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or, toast in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and aromatic.


I always pick out the pecans first, then cashews. I have a nut hierarchy that I like..
