Below are the mixture of nuts that we've tried.

Mix 1: Cashew Nuts (1 Cup), Brazilian Nuts (1 Cup), Walnuts (1 Cup), Melon Seeds (1 Cup)
Mix 2: Cashew Nuts (2 Cup), Walnuts (1 Cup), Macadamia Nuts (1 Cup)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some Extra Tips Below:
- Tossing nuts with Honey and a Sugar coating before roasting them gives the nuts a shell-like glaze. These nuts are sweeter and crunchier than traditional honey-roasted nuts.
- Use the same methods with any other nuts or a mixture of nuts. Smaller nuts might not take as long to roast, so keep your eye on them and adjust the cooking time accordingly.
