Orange-Spiced Nuts

I forget where I found this recipe, but I’ve had it for years and years. Always something that I’m required to ship to my brother at Christmastime. My sister-in-law says they’re gone within 48 hours!

Instructions

  1. 1In a 2-quart glass measure or bowl, combine nuts, sugar, margarine, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook on HIGH in microwave for 5-6 minutes until nuts are browned, stirring twice during cooking. Stir in orange peel and ground red pepper and mix well.
  2. 2Spread on cookie sheet lined with foil to completely cool, stirring once or twice while cooling to break up nuts.
  3. 3

    NOTES : I usually buy the extra large cans of Planters mixed nuts at BJ’s Wholesale Club – that makes about 2 1/2 batches of this recipe.
