Very easy recipe. If I can make it, anyone can. I made this for my nut loving MIL, who thought it was great especially because I used pecans.

Yum Yum! I made this recipe and it was easy and delicious! I used only peanuts but I'd like to try it with mixed nuts too. I turned my heat way down and cooked it for the full five minutes and I had perfect results. Thanks Melanie for this great Christmas treat!
