Party Nibbles: Sweet and Spicy Walnuts

By Kelsey Banfield

Sweet WalnutsSweet & Spicy Walnuts is one of those recipes that I just love for entertaining. It is fast, easy and delicious. I can whip them up and have them in the oven in under 10 minutes. Sometimes I even toss them into cute little treat baggies and hand them out as gifts as people leave, or gift them to hostess for a cute thank you. No matter where you serve them you can always plan on one thing, there are never any leftovers.
