      I have been looking for a simple spiced nut recipe and have found the perfect one. Not to sweet or spicy.

      BH & I thought this recipe was okay, nothing great. I feel that the sugars came together well to coat the nuts. I'm not sure what it was missing, but to me, it needed something. My BH's family enjoyed it a lot so it wasn't a total loss.

      This recipe is fantastic! I made it exactly as it is written and it turned out really well. It provides a very nice blend of sweet and spicy and is very addicting! I did increase the recipe by 1/2 so that I could use 3 cups of nuts (1 cup each of pecans, walnuts, and almonds).
