There are occasions that present themselves all year round where a snack recipe like this would be perfect.  With summer on it’s way, this would be a great snack for BBQ’s, graduation parties, wedding receptions or just plain old summertime fun.  

Corn Snack Nut Mix combines warm spices with orange juice and zest to give you a delicious flavor.  Cinnamon, allspice and ginger pair very well with the orange in the recipe.  It also has plenty of crunch going on with the addition of mixed nuts together with the corn snack.  

Corn Snack Nut Mix
1 package Corn Snacks, 7.5 ounce (like Bugles)
2 cups mixed nuts
2 Tablespoons orange juice
2 egg whites
1 1/3 cups white sugar
1 Tablespoon orange zest, ( 1 navel orange gave me the zest and orange juice for this recipe)
2 Teaspoons cinnamon
1 Teaspoon allspice
1 Teaspoon ground ginger

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.  Grease a cookie sheet with shortening.

2. Mix the corn snack and mixed nuts in a large bowl.  In a medium size bowl, using a whisk, whisk the egg whites and orange juice together until foamy.  Whisk in the remaining ingredients.  Pour over the corn snack and nuts, stir to combine, and coat well.  Spread the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet.  Bake for a total of 45 minutes, stirring the mixture every 15 minutes until light brown and crispy.  Remove from the cookie sheet to a strip of foil to cool completely.  Store in an air tight container.

Mixed Review: Crate & Barrel vs. Trader Joe's Cornbread

Mixed Review: Crate & Barrel vs. Trader Joe's Cornbread: "'The Trader Joe's cornbread was some of the best cornbread I've tasted, from a mix or otherwise.'

Ever wonder about a boxed mix you've seen in the store? Is it any good? Could it replace something you'd otherwise make from scratch? Welcome to Mixed Review, where the whole point is putting boxed mixes to the test! —The Mgmt.

Two years ago, I did a roundup of standard supermarket cornbread mixes for this column and was generally unimpressed with all of them. They were gummy, thin, and cloyingly sweet. I called Jiffy, my top choice, 'solid, if not sensational' and recommended doctoring it up with add-ins like sun-dried tomatoes, poppy seeds, and pecans.

This year, I thought it was time to revisit the cornbread basket by comparing two readily available specialty mixes: Crate & Barrel's Buttermilk Cornbread Mix ($8.95) and Trader Joe's Cornbread Mix ($2.69).
