Spicy Buffalo Mixed Nuts

Well, hello 2012.  I sorta keep pinching myself because I’m thinking that I’m in a dream.  That 2011 isn’t really over.  “Time flies” is an understatement.  What a great year it was.  So all I have to say is that this year has BIG shoes to fill.

This recipe is definitely a start to filling those shoes.  I would even say that this *might be*my new favorite snack.  I’m pretty sure you are aware of our affection for Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.  Imagine what happens when I combined my favorite spicy flavors with a salty snack like mixed nuts…well, I mean after I took a few sips of water…I. Was. Hooked.  I mean, immediately.

Try these for your next party or potluck or dinner.  You will definitely be very popular, I promise!

    I know what you mean, I feel like I blinked and 2011 was over. So crazy. And, I’m a sucker for all things “Buffalo.” Now if someone could just make a cupcake with “buffalo” flavors…
