OMG! These were so easy! I did not have any oranges to zest, so I just replaced the water with good ol' oj. Even my girls, who don't like nuts, ate this "special candy" that mom made for New Year's Eve.

These are very addicting! I made a few changes just based on the ingredients I had on hand. I omitted the orange zest but added ground all spice. I also added a splash of pure maple syrup. Thanks for posting!

So simple, yet so delicious! I, too, subbed brown sugar and orange juice and used just 1/3 cup of the brown sugar. Still sweet enough and tasty enough to give as a holiday gift. Thanks for sharing.

WOW! There is only a problem with this snack: it's too difficult to stop eating it!<br/>The recipe is very easy and in a few minutes I got delicious nuts, much better than from the shop.<br/>This is one of the recipe that need only a few mimutes work for great results.<br/>Thanks a lot for this delicious snack!

These are good. I used smaller walnut pieces, brown sugar, allspice in place of nutmeg because of it's intoxicant properties, plus the rest of the ingredients.

WHAT A GREAT SNACK !!! Just the perfect amount of spices for a great seasoning. Seeing the kids are devouring this, and I have plenty of walnuts leftover making a batch for myself. Made for PRMR.

Very good and so easy! I have made these several times, usually using pecans. I love how simple they are to make and they are so delicious! I use chopped nuts and then put them in a salad.

These nuts have a great taste. But they're too sweet. I may reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup next time. I omitted the nutmeg (personal preference). And I may try it with pecans cause walnuts are not my favorites. Thanks Bayhill. Made for Zaar Star Game.

I just made these today. These are SO EASY!!! And the end result is AWESOME!!! I used almonds since we had just bought "candied almonds" at the local weekend market and I wanted to have more! These are just like the ones we bought .......for alot more money for alot less almonds. This is a keeper!! Thanks for sharing! I had no idea that these could be so easy to make!
