Baked Cocoa Nuts
What's better than a big bowl of sweet chocolaty nuts? Ok, I admit it ... lots of things, but ... that doesn't mean that this tasty assorted nuts mix is bad. They're awesome!
These are perfect for any social gathering. Just lie them out there for people to eat! I'm a big fan of "the twist" and tend to throw a slightly outlandish ingredient into things. I like to surprise! If you want to keep these nuts more traditional, simply omit the cayenne and you'll have a sweet tasty bowl of nuts!
