We tried this out last year and were also pretty disappointed with the look of them so my husband the cook doctored them up and came up with these comments: "OK here's what you do. You can use a can and a half of mixed nuts (about 1 lb) if you're feeling poor. Dust most of the salt off by rolling them on a terry towel. Use 2/3 c brown sugar 1/2 tsp. cloves egg white of a small egg 4-5 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. ginger 2 tsp vanilla. Otherwise follow recipe. Bake 24 mins. Cool and dust with confectioner's sugar." We did them that way and they were very good -- the confectioner's sugar gave them a different look and they worked very well for a holiday snack. The salt in the nuts helped to cut the sweetness.

Super easy to make. Used pecans and almonds. Recommend pecans b/c I thought the almonds were a bit tough to chew. Not a sweet recipe the cloves and brown sugar give it more of a pungent aromatic taste. Read More

This recipe was the hit of our christmas party last night! All of our guests loved them and aske dme for the recipe. They couldn't believe how good they tasted. My one suggestion: they are so easy to make make them on the day of the party not the night before because they taste the absolute best an hour or so after they're out of the oven. The only problem is trying not to eat them all at once! Read More

We made these (with pecans) for a cocktail party and have since made several more pounds to give out to our friends who enjoyed them so much! Great and easy to make. I highly recommend pecans - they seem to work best with the other flavors. Read More

I tried this recipe tonight and was very pleased. I used walnuts and plan to try pecans next. Everyone loves them. I also sprinkled a little more sugar before placing them in the oven. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

This was not at all what I was expecting. They looked like I drenched them in cocoa powder and cinnamon. I was hoping for a shiny honey colored glaze. They tasted kind of ok but got soggy within an hour. Read More

I thought these were okay but nobody at the party would touch them. People keep asking me what's on those nuts? Even after I told them they wouldn't try them. Read More
