Very tasty. I also used a mix of brown and white sugar. I was afraid they would stick, so I baked the nuts on a piece of aluminum foil sprayed it with Pam. It made for a very easy clean up.

This was an okay recipe.I think maybe the cook time was to much.I cooked them 25 minutes and they tasted a little burnt.I think also maybe could use a little nutmeg and butter.

Everytime I make these my Mom tries to hoard them all. I added some other spices for my liking. I add nutmeg and use half white sugar and half brown sugar. I also add some allspice to it. They a...
