Don’t even think about serving that old classic “party mix” at your Oscars party. This isn’t an 8-year-old’s birthday party. This is red carpet material, even if it’s in your living room.

So it’s time to class up your party mix act. And with this recipe for spiced bacon pecans, you’ll have no trouble. We start with bacon because, well, because all good things start with bacon.

Not a fan of pecans? Peanuts, cashews or walnuts would be just as delicious.
