The original of this recipe was found in Paula Deen's 2009 Christmas Cookbook! I've tweaked it some to better suit out taste!

This is super simple and super tasty! I wasn't sure if DH would like them because he doesn't always like nuts in things but he asked to have them again the next night - the sure sign of a winner. Made for PRMRT
