READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Crabbycakes

This is a great treat if you need something to mail for the holidays. The citrus is great at cutting the sweetness.

I made three different kinds of nuts for Christmas. I made these with pecan halves and I really liked the flavor. My only minor complaint is that the nuts turn a little white rather than glossy. Will make again.
