**Happy Holidays** (and a quick, nutty recipe)

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays 

Here's a last minute recipe idea for a holiday party: "Spicy Cajun Party Nuts" (in case you received a delayed invite, burnt the pies, or just plain procrastinated)!

This is super quick, easy, and yummy!

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

3 tbsp butter
3 cups plain mixed nuts
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
cajun spice mix (to add as needed)

Melt butter in microwave-safe dish.

Place mixed nuts in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

Remove butter from microwave. Stir in remaining ingredients (except cajun spice mix). 
Drizzle butter mixture over nuts & stir to coat.
Lightly sprinkle cajun spice mix on top of nuts to add additional "kick" as desired.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until nuts are crisp, stirring every 20 minutes.

Remove from oven & cool to room temp.

Store in air tight container for up to 1 month.
