"Being a teacher, I'm giving these an A+! What an easy and fast recipe to make. The end results are incredibly delicious-- to the point where my fellow teachers and I called them "down-right addictive". Already planning on making some more to share with family and friends for the holiday."

"I would recommend roasting the pecans in the oven. The flavor was awesome, but the pecans were not roasted enough. I did use raw pecans and this did not say anything about raw or not. I had some five-spice and love it!! Great flavor!!"
