I've been searching for a good snack nut mix for gifts and I believe I've found it. Thank you. - I did make the following changes based on my families tastes. I reduced the cloves by half (1/8 tsp), and used regular butter and mixed nuts because it's what I had. Near the end of cooking I sprinkled just a smattering of sugar over the top and tossed it in. I made this on the stove top in a wok because I don't have a microwave dish big enuf and my test batch seemed - "chewy". Here's how I finally dried off the oilyness from the butter and it seemed to work OK. After cooking stove top a few minutes I finished them off in the oven at 325 for 5 - 10 minutes. I then put a flat cooling rack on the bottom of a jelly roll pan and covered it with a piece of paper bag covered with paper towels. Then I put them back in the over at 250 for ~10 minutes, stirring as necessary until they were mostly dry. Let cool on racks. I hope that helps someone. If you have any better ideas for drying off the nuts I look forward to learning it. Enjoy.
