This tasty snack gets its flavor from 5-Spice Powder, which is a staple in Chinese cooking.

The powder is a combination of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. You can find it in the spice aisle at the supermarket or combine the five spices yourself.

After you’ve finished making spiced nuts, you can use the spice on meats like chicken and duck or on seafood. Try sprinkling a little on stir-fried vegetables, too.

It may become one of your new spice rack staples.
