Sweet n Spicy Nuts

2 cups unsalted mixed nuts such as pecans and whole almonds
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon salt

In a heavy skillet cook nuts in butter over moderate heat, stirring, 2 minutes.

In a small bowl stir together sugars, cayenne, black pepper, and salt and sprinkle mixture over nuts. Continue to cook nuts, stirring constantly, until sugar caramelizes, about 8 minutes.

Transfer nuts to a sheet of foil and cool. Break nuts apart.

Nuts may be made 3 days ahead and kept in an airtight container.
