Move over chex mix, this sweet and spicy party mix is the new snack mix in town!


  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 2 cup pecans
  • 2 cup pretzel twists
  • 2 cup oyster crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  2. Whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, cayenne, cardamom and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add the nuts, pretzels, and crackers and toss to coat.
  4. Spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring once halfway. The mixture will still be slightly wet-looking and will dry out as it cools.
