2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
2 (6-ounce) packages (3 cups) shelled salted pistachios
1 (11.5-ounce) can (2 cups) mixed nuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
- You can substitute regular chile powder for the chipotle chile powder, but the smoky flavor will be missing.
