Heat oven to 300°F. In medium bowl, mix nuts and butter until nuts are coated. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients except sugar; sprinkle over nuts. Stir until nuts are completely coated. In ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, spread nuts in single layer.
Bake uncovered about 10 minutes or until nuts are toasted. Return to medium bowl. While nuts are still hot, sprinkle with sugar and toss to coat. Serve warm, or cool completely, about 1 hour. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 3 weeks.
