Reviews for Caramel-Coated Spiced Nuts
"These are so delicious! I've been making them for Christmas ever since the recipe first appeared in the magazine, and we love them. They are wonderfully crunchy and always well-received."
"I have made these so many times! They're easy and taste so good, they are a family favorite I make them every year. Last year I made them and sent them to my son who is in the army, I made them for all his friends and they were very well received I need to make them again this year!"
"Make it often. Goes over great as a gift."
"The recipe sounded better than it tasted. Was very disappointed."
"Great for parties and my husband loves to take them with on his hunting trips."
"The flavor was good, but the nuts were soft after sitting overnight. I made a similar recipe and the nuts stayed nice and crisp so I will stick with the other recipe. I baked this in a glass dish and it still stuck really badly."
"Made this recipe 4 times last xmas. Used as gifts & served at party."
