Spicy Party Nuts / #SuperBowlFood

No matter if you are a hosting your first party, or you have been the "hostess with the mostess" for years, you are going to want these Spicy Party Nuts at your next shindig! Especially your football parties! This recipe comes from a favorite grocery store of mine here in North Carolina~Lowes Foods! Every day they have activities in their store where they demonstrate how to make different recipes, and a copy of the recipe is available in the store. A lot of the recipes are made with local ingredients, which I love, and that is the case with this recipe. 
These nuts are warmed in the slow cooker, and while you are preparing for the party, the slow cooker does the rest. These nuts can be made ahead of time, and served a few days later too! 
Spicy Party Nuts
(printable recipe at end of post)
1 pound Pecan Halves
1/4 cup melted Butter
1 tablespoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Dried Basil
1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper

Set your slow cooker to high. Allow it to heat for 10 minutes. Pour the nuts into the slow cooker, and drizzle the butter over them. Mix until all the nuts are coated with the butter.
Mix in a few of the spices. Stir the nuts until they are all covered evenly. Mix in a few more of the spices, and stir again. Continue until all spices are added, and evenly covered.


Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 15 minutes. Drop the temperature to low, remove the lid, and cook until the nuts have a crisp glaze on them. The nuts should be stirred a couple times during this process to prevent any burning. This should take 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
 Place nuts on a parchment or foil covered baking sheet to cool.
Enjoy your Spicy Party Nuts! Stop back next Monday, Jan.23 for the sweet version of these nuts!

Boys of Fall Cupcakes!

The dessert for this week is named after the song by Kenny Chesney,  "The Boys of Fall". I thought it would be fitting to end the week of Football Feasts with a  cupcake about football.
 Chocolate Cupcakes
(adapted from Southern Living)
5 eggs, separated
1/2 cup Butter, soft
1/2 cup Shortening
2 cups Sugar
2 1/4 cups Flour
1/4 cup unsweetened Cocoa
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup Buttermilk
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Make sure you separate the eggs before beating them.
You only want to work with the whites first. Set the
yolks to the side. Beat the whites until they form stiff
peaks.
Set them aside. I put mine in another bowl after mixing. 
I needed the bowl for my mixer to make the rest of the recipe.
Beat the butter and shortening until creamy.
Gradually add sugar, mixing thoroughly.
Add the egg yolks, 1 at a time, mixing well.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, and baking soda.
Use a whisk to really mix up the ingredients.
Begin adding the dry ingredients, then add a little 
buttermilk, and mix. Continue adding like this until it is 
all mixed together. Add the vanilla. Beat.
Fold in the egg whites.
Place in cupcake wrappers and cook at 325 degrees
for 20 minutes. 
I used a recipe for the cookies called
No Fail Sugar Cookies. I love this recipe, and always use it.
We have made it before here.
Make the recipe and then cut out the dough with a football
cutter. Cook the cookies according to the
directions here.
Frost the cookies like we did this time.
Use green frosting and a Wilton tip #233 to make grass
all over the cupcake.
Add mini Fall leaves to the top of the cupcakes.
Add the cookie to the cupcake like this.

Enjoy!

Thanks for joining me in this late post.
I apologize for that.
