The name says it all (no, it doesn’t). Dena brought these nuts to Becky’s Super Bowl party and they were totally addictive.
1/3 cup beer
1 cup brown sugar
6 slices chopped bacon
1 tbsp salt
3.5 cups nuts (Dena mixed peanuts, almonds and pecans)
Preheat oven to 350.
Boil beer (light is fine), sugar, bacon, salt and cayenne until beer dissolves (eight minutes or so). Mix in nuts. Spread out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool – it basically forms a brittle of sorts.
