"Just wondering if you could use a diabetic sugar to make these candied nuts"

"This was easily the best and simplest candied nut recipe I've tried. Plus it is SO customizable. I made the original recipe as is with great results. I loved it so much we decided to make a second batch, only this time I added just a touch of orange zest and juice to the spice mixture and it was just as great. This made wonderful Christmas gifts also."

"Wonderful easy. I only had almonds and cashews to use, but they "cooked" up just fine. I added a dash of cayenne & black pepper to the spice mix. I think next time I will cut back on the butter as a lot of it just stayed on the waxed paper when I cooled the nuts."
