MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2016

"I forgot to turn them over halfway through cooking and they were still great. Pretty easy to make also. I could have been just as happy without the dry roasted nuts. Pecans and walnuts are my favorites. Might try using just those two nuts the next time."

"I made this recipe last fall. My husband took some to work. Three guys asked for the recipe. When I made it the second time, I split the batch and sent some home with both of my adult kids. They've been begging me to make more. Very, very good recipe!"
