I used Pecans which worked well. Next time I will use 2.5 cups of nuts to use up all of the glaze. Also added a pinch of nutmeg which tasted nice. I spread them out (so they didn't touch one another) on parchment paper and placed them in the fridge. They were still "sticky" after cooling, otherwise I would have given them a 5. Very tasty though!
