Microwave Sweet Nuts

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chef Dudo

Nuts are supposed to be healthy. Could this be a "healthy" sweet snack? Don't know. They are nice though, perfect if your sweet tooth is aching and you need something fast.

I had some pecans I needed to use up. This recipe looked easy and quick to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used Splenda intead of sugar as that is all I buy. I also didn't add the sesame seeds. These were good and very easy to make. Next time I think I would add a bit more sugar as I didn't think they were very sweet.
