these were awesome! I decreased the amount of sugar to 1 cup brown and 1/4 cup white and I found them to be plenty sweet. Even my toddler loved them! Very easy and tasty Read More

Oh mo goodness!! These are delicious! I used 1/2 almonds and 1/2 pecans but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I am supposed to take them to a party tonight I hope there are some left. I can't stay out of them! Read More

These are yummy!! I have only ever used cashews not almonds but i am sure you could use any kind of nut. It is a great way to use up leftover eggwhites after making custard:-)They go deliciously crunchy with just a touch of cinnamon flavour. I usually whisk all ingredients except the nuts together in a large bowl then add the nuts last and mix the coating through. Highly recommended would make a great gift i haven't actually given any away yet coz i'm too selfish i want to keep them all for myself. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as stated and they turned out amazing!! I had to bring half of them in to work so I wouldn't eat the whole batch just most of it! My son loves getting these at the ball park or mall. He was a fan especially when they came out of the oven. This will be a regular treat for us! Read More
