A sweet and spicy take on trail mix. I used two featured ingredients - honey and dried fruit.
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
¼ cup honey
¾ tsp cayenne pepper (add more if desired)
1 pounds nuts (any variety)
1-2 cups dried fruit
Combine sugar and salt in a bowl.
Melt honey and cayenne pepper in a skillet over the grill. Add nuts and stir to coat. Spread nut mixture in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Bake in gas oven preheated to 350 (or on the grill) for 10-15 minutes, stirring once. Raw nuts will need to be cooked slightly longer.
Cool slightly and then mix nuts with the sugar/salt mixture.
Add 1-2 cups dried fruit of your choice. You can also add chocolate chips, if desired.
